Autumn book festivals pitching

31 January 2020

Date: Friday 31 January 2020

Location: Scott House, Edinburgh


We have arranged pitching sessions for members with three of the key autumn book festivals here at the Publishing Scotland offices in Edinburgh on Friday 31 January. You will have the opportunity to present your authors and titles to the following programmers.

  • Adrian Turpin & Isla Rosser-Owen from the Wigtown Book Festival
  • Gail Wylie from the Bookmark Festival in Blairgowrie
  • Polly Pullar from the Write Highland Hoolie Festival in Mallaig

The programmers are looking for authors and books that will bring in an audience for a really good event, so it's best to focus on a few great pitches rather than present your whole publishing programme. You will have 20 minutes to pitch.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Vikki Reilly, Marketing and Events Manager.
