Book Week Scotland 2015

The Faculty of Creative Industries, and specifically HNC Professional Writing Skills students, are partners in Book Week Scotland 2015 and will be involved in several exciting activities. Book Week runs from 23-29 November and the college will be putting on two public events. City Lines, on Monday 23 Nov at Mono (King St), features performances of prose and poetry by the students, along with special guest performances from award-winning novelist and Glasgow University’s professor of creative writing, Louise Welsh, and the remarkable poet William Letford. The event is free and open to the general public. On Thursday 26th November, we will be holding a Q&A panel of experts, discussing the impact of the digital marketplace on the writing and publishing industries. This will be held at 7pm in the Riverside campus and panelists conformed so far include Ed James (bestselling digital-only novelist), Adrian Searle (CEO, Feight Books) and Kyle MacRae (Blasted Heath digital publishers) with more TBC. The students will also be creating bespoke reading spaces around college campuses and acting as ambassadors for Book Week, including giving out the official accompanying book.
