Scots Language Publication Grant for Publishers

The Scots Language Publication grant exists to support Scottish publishers to publish and promote work written in Scots.

The Scots Language Publication grant was set up by The Scots Language Resource Network, which meets twice a year to discuss the coordination and publication of new and existing resources (online and in print) that support the learning and teaching of Scots.

It currently includes representatives from the following organisations:

• Education Scotland
• Glasgow Women’s Library
• Literature Alliance Scotland
• National Library of Scotland
• Publishing Scotland
• Scots Language Centre

• Wigtown Book Festival

The publication grant is funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Scottish Book Trust.

We will cover some or all of the costs relating to the following:
• Copy editing and proofing
