Publishing Scotland: International Fellowship Programme 2023

Opportunities blue Publishing Scotland logo

Apply by Tuesday January 31 2023 for Publishing Scotland’s 2023 International Fellowship Programme.

We are now looking for 8–10 publishers to join us in Scotland in 2023 for a packed programme of meetings, market presentations, networking, publisher and agent visits, and more. The Fellowship takes place during a week in August to coincide with the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the world-famous Edinburgh Festival and Fringe. All travel and accommodation costs are paid.

The Fellows will be chosen by a steering committee and emphasis will be placed upon the track record of the publishing company and their previous interest in, and links to, the industry in Scotland. This year we are looking to increase the number of Fellows in children’s publishing. We aim for a wide spread of countries each year and a balance of larger and smaller publishing houses.

Publishing Scotland’s International Fellowship Programme aims to encourage relationships between the international publishing community and their Scottish counterparts, and facilitate the buying and selling of rights.

Part-funded by Creative Scotland, the Fellowship Programme aims to broaden the reach and influence of books coming out of Scotland, through developing relationships between the international publishing community and the Scottish sector.
