Readers and writers of Scotland!

Do you want to support Scotland’s vibrant literary culture? Then join the club!

It’s an exciting time to be a member at the Scottish Writers’ Centre. Through members’ annual subscription, the SWC is able to bring you the best of up-and-coming and established writers to our literary events.

Last year, we were able to host inspiring events, such as our ‘In Process’ Masterclasses with Liz Lochhead and Louise Welsh, musings about comic books from Gary Chudleigh, thoughts on poetry from Ryan Van Winkle, and many more! We also work in partnership with the Aye Write! festival and Scottish PEN to give writers and readers a gamut of inspiration.

Membership costs are £15/£10 concession (students, pensioners and unwaged). Your subscription allows us to fund administration costs and present the wide array of literary events. It entitles you to attend 2 events per month for free, including our annual partnership event with the Aye Write! book festival, and our inspiring and enlivening Speakeasy open mic nights.

Our calendar for 2017 is already jam packed with exciting events. Click here to check out our literary events programme, or here to join our Facebook group and keep up to date with all we do.
