Added on June 2, 2021.

This engaging and comprehensive report from freelance Programmer and Interviewer, Lee Randall, captures the significant shift to digital bookish activity in Scotland and further afield as 2020’s lockdown of Festival season stretched on; the lessons learned, the opportunities discovered and those left by the wayside.

Originally commissioned as part of the re-establishment of the Scottish Book Festivals Network, this report, launched on 16 March 2021, is essential reading for anyone involved in digital delivery of events, author promotion, and audience development. It covers thorny issues such as monetisation, accessibility, audience development and digital burnout through a mixture of research-informed writing, expert interviews and real-life case-studies.
