Open throughout the year, our Author International Travel Fund is available to Scottish writers who have been invited overseas to promote their work. Applicants can apply for a maximum of £1000 to support travel costs towards their trip.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
This fund has been established by Scottish Books International to support writers who have been invited overseas to promote their work. This fund can only support travel costs at this time.
The fund 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.
In its first year of operation, the fund supported 13 Scottish writers.
