About


The Scottish Writers’ Centre is a countrywide resource, which supports national writers and promotes Scotland’s vibrant literary culture. Operated solely by volunteers, the SWC is therefore by writers, for writers – the organisation provides a space for writers to meet, share ideas and experiences about the craft, and learn from those further advanced. Central to this cause are the facilities provided by, and the activities arranged with the support of, Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts (where the SWC is currently based).

Through ‘In Process’ masterclasses, the SWC encourages literary appreciation and professional development. Led by renowned Scottish writers at the top of their respective fields (be it Novel, Play, or Poetry writing), future classes will include Screen and Comic Book media (charting the transformative process of adaption). The SWC also holds open-forum discussions and debates with eminent guest speakers, in which visitors can share their opinions and ideas.

Check this website regularly for updates and details of membership benefits; subscribe to our blog, like our Facebook page, and follow the SWC on Twitter for the very latest information on events, submissions, and more.

Annual membership of the SWC is currently £15 (£10 for students/unwaged), for which you will receive a membership card, free admission to our events, and entry of your work to our biannual ‘Speakeasy’ events. You will also be permitted to borrow two books per month from the SWC library.

Do let us know if you possess any skills or experience which you can offer, to help support the operation and expansion of the SWC.
