On The Writers’ Collective, a new venture that creates opportunities for the county's writers to sell their work, is launching itself with an all-star event at Wigtown during the final day of the Book Festival.
It's WagTongues, and will be at the Machars Inititaive Centre, 26, South Main Street, from
McMillan, Vivien Jones, David Mark Williams and JoAnne McKay; from Sally Hinchcliffe, whose novel Out of a Clear Sky was Radio 4's Book at Bedtime, and from other local authors and some surprise guests.. A pop-up bookshop, selling superb publications created in Dumfries and Galloway, there will also be pop-up readings from prize-winning writers Hugh
If you want to talk books, hear books, see books and touch books (but no licking) then get along during the day. Wine, chat, gossip and the chance to own your own Moob Hat, created by the Paper-Sculptor-in-Residence.
The money from the books sold will go direct (no commission) to the authors themselves – and any donations from the readings will go to to Arthritis Care in Scotland. We're good guys.
If you’re a local author who’d like to be included, get in touch with the Writers' Collective sharp-ish . E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
