The Performing Writer

Who wants to be a writer now?

Wednesday 15 August

6:45pm - 7:45pm

£10.00, £8.00 concessions

Gone are the days when authors were able to write in their garrets in relative obscurity. Now they are asked to write great books and perform, blog and regularly tweet.

Historian and Chair of the Society of Authors in Scotland, Angus Konstam, joins crime writer Lindsey Davis, Arts Curator of Latitude Festival Tania Harrison and Angela Robertson, head of publicity at Canongate to discuss the changes.
