Paisley Book Festival Event Proposal Call Outs

Having taken place for the first time in February 2020, the Paisley Book Festival is a platform for the celebration of books, reading and writing in Paisley over the course of 10 days. It is a festival with creativity and innovation at the heart of its programming, seeking to showcase some of the best and most diverse voices being published today in Scotland and in the wider UK context. In 2020, the inaugural festival was inspired by the actions of the 1820 Paisley Radicals, celebrating Paisley as a place where people value their unique rich history - while also looking forward with energy and creativity. It included 64 events for adults, children and schools, with the Paisley Arts Centre as its hub venue, and involved more than 30 local volunteers. In 2021, the festival will continue to focus on grassroots rebellion, revolution and activism, taking account of the ways that the world has changed radically in the last 12 months. We are asking contributors to consider how, as writers and readers, we create Radical New Futures, as every aspect of our personal, social and economic lives is overturned and reinvented in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Submission Deadline: Monday 24th August 2020 5pm
