Having taken place for the first time in February 2020, the Paisley Book Festival is a platform for the celebration of books, reading and writing in Paisley over the course of 10 days. It is a festival with creativity and innovation at the heart of its programming, seeking to showcase some of the best and most diverse voices being published today in Scotland and in the wider UK context.
Following on from our successful inaugural Festival last year, we are delighted to add a new strand to our 2021 Festival. We are inviting submissions from an experienced writer for our Digital Writer-in-Residence scheme, thanks to funding from Creative Scotland's Sustaining Creative Development Programme.
Learning is a key part of the Paisley Book Festival with panel discussions and workshops at the core of our programme. As well as encouraging reading for enjoyment, debate and discussion we also have a Schools Programme. For more information on this contact our programmer.
Thank you for supporting the inaugural Paisley Book Festival. We will back in 2021.
