Working Internationally: Writers
15 October 2021
When: 17:00 to 18:00 Friday 15 October 2021
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
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.
