Scottish Book Trust

The Scottish Book Trust are a national charity that has been bringing the benefits of reading and writing to everyone in Scotland since 1998. Each year they run 'Sharing Sensory Stories Authors Lab' and this year the lab is aimed at authors and storytellers with little to no previous experience in sensory storytelling.

The two–day programme of seminars and workshops will teach you all the tools and give you the confidence you need to deliver stories in engaging and accessible ways.

You will have the chance to work with highly skilled and experienced professionals and artists ready to give you guidance to improve your practice and discover your own talent.

Before applying, please ensure you are able to attend both days of Authors Lab. There are 10 Authors Lab places available, and this training is fully-funded. We can offer limited financial support with travel and accommodation costs for participants travelling from remote parts of Scotland

Deadline for applications is 5pm, Friday 24 March.
