Scottish Books International has established the Author International Travel Fund to support writers who have been invited overseas to promote their work.
SBI works on behalf of the literature sector in Scotland and is dedicated to the international promotion of books, writers, festivals and organisations.
Applicants can apply for a maximum of £1000 to support travel costs towards their trip.
Applications are welcome from the writer themselves, or from the organisation who has invited the author.
The fund opens 1 April 2019. You can apply at any time throughout the year. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis while there is an available budget for the quarter.
The fund aims to:
- Increase opportunities for Scottish writers to attend festivals and other promotional or exchange events overseas.
- Remove barriers for Scottish writers from all backgrounds to take up these opportunities.
- Develop relationships between Scottish writers and festivals, publishers and organisations overseas.
