Miss our Friday morning email? Well, you’re in luck. Here’s what we had…
#SCOTLITFEST officially kicks off today! For our first email to subscribers we thought we’d give you a little insight into the people who have made this virtual festival possible: The Saltire Society.
As an initiative run by the Saltire Society as part of their 80th anniversary celebrations, #saltire80, we decided to look into their pamphlets by way of an introduction to newcomers as to one element of what the society do. Discover more here.
The Saltire Society has for decades supported writers at all stages of their career, here are just some authors you might have missed in their nominations over the years:
- Five women nominated for the First Book Award
- Five men nominated for the First Book Award
- Saltire Society Book of the Year nominees in the 1980s
#SCOTLITFEST will reveal our Michel Faber interview video at 3pm, followed by a Twitter chat with Outlander author Diana Gabaldon. In the meantime, here’s Michel on his Saltire Society win in 2015:
