Working Internationally: Writers

15 October 2021

When: 17:00 to 18:00 Friday 15 October 2021
Format: Online

Aimed at writers, this free event is organised by Scottish Books International in partnership with Literature Alliance Scotland.

Whilst rooted in Scotland, our rich literary sector makes connections across the world in many ways. But taking your work outside of Scotland can be daunting: how do you go about connecting with international audiences and making the most of the resources available to you? Organised by Scottish Books International in partnership with Literature Alliance Scotland, our new Working Internationally events bring together experienced authors and industry professionals to demystify some of the ways in which organisations, festivals, publishers, and writers can work internationally.

Focusing on writers, the second event in the series will discuss ways to increase your international presence as an author and make the most of the resources and opportunities available to you. In conversation with Peggy Hughes, authors Graeme Macrae Burnet (Case Study, His Bloody Project) and Nadine Aisha Jassat (Let Me Tell You This) will share their experience participating in international opportunities and performing their work to audiences worldwide; and Black and White Publishing's Rights Manager Janne Moller will provide some behind-the-scenes knowledge of rights sales and international opportunities for Scottish books and authors.
