Writers urged to speak out

Have your say

BUDDING authors are being invited to read their work as part of this year’s Edinburgh Book Festival.

Story Shop will give one writer per day a ten-minute slot to showcase their work to an audience.

The free event, produced by the Edinburgh Unesco City of Literature Trust, will take place in the Book Festival’s Spiegeltent.

Writers, who must be from or live in the Capital, will appear from August 11-27 and must be comfortable speaking in public. Training sessions will also be available in July.
