Author International Travel Fund

With support from Creative Scotland, this fund has been established by Scottish Books International to support writers who have been invited overseas to promote their work. It aims to:

  • Increase opportunities for Scottish writers to attend festivals and other promotion or exchange events overseas.
  • Remove barriers for Scottish writers from all backgrounds to take up these opportunities.
  • Develop relationships between Scottish writers and festivals, publishers and organisations overseas.

The fund is open to professional Scottish writers with a demonstrable track record of work. Applications are welcome from the writers themselves or from the organisation who has invited the writer, for a maximum of £1000 to support travel costs towards the trip.

There is no deadline, with applications accepted on an ongoing basis while there is an available budget for the quarter.
