Literature Ambassador

Wigtown, in the west of Dumfries and Galloway is Scotland’s national Book Town. They have one big and several smaller festivals each year, and have responsibility to nourish and support literary activity in the region. Which is where I come in. I am one of three Literature Ambassadors commissioned by Wigtown Book Festival Company to provide support for writers, readers, and anyone who wishes to organise a literary event outwith Wigtown itself. All three of us are writers and utterly committed to nurturing the literature scene in the area. Mostly my job consists of publicising and attending book based events, but I also run and/or facilitate events and workshops, and put writers in touch with each other, and organisations who need them. If you are an organisation who feels you could benefit from a writer, whether this is to add an extra dimension to an event, to run workshops for staff and/or clients, or to bring your story to life, feel free to contact me. Likewise, if you are holding a literary event in the region let me know and I’ll help publicise it. And if you are a writer with a book or reading to push, get in touch and I’ll do my best to help.
