A collective voice for literature and languages in Scotland

Advocacy

LAS is the collective voice for Scotland’s literature and languages and we aim to raise the volume of the sector louder than ever before. We advocate on behalf of LAS members and the literature and languages sector, representing their interests to key policymakers, including Scottish Government, Local Authorities and Creative Scotland.

Literature Talks

Literature Talks is a series of commissioned pieces asking Scotland’s leading writers and literature producers to reflect on an aspect of Scotland’s literary landscape. Join the conversation by using #LiteratureTalks on Twitter.

Read the first commission: Theresa Breslin on Libraries – The Magic Portal.

 

Writers’ Advisory Group

Our new Writers’ Advisory Group is made up of five published writers living and working in Scotland. With writer organisations already active in our membership, the aim is to further strengthen the advice to our Board from a diverse and inclusive writing community.
