Code of conduct: Investigating misconduct & the storytelling community

Authors who wish to be listed as a storyteller on Scottish Book Trust's author directory must read and agree to the following information in addition to our Code of Conduct.

To be listed as a storyteller on the author directory, you must first be an accredited storyteller on the Directory of Storytellers (TRACS)(this will open in a new window) as set out in our criteria. After gaining your accreditation, you would apply to the author directory, reading and accepting the below information in addition to our full Code of Conduct as part of submitting your application.

If you are registered on both directories please note the following:

  1. there is a present or immediate risk of future harm to audiences, pupils or staff of host organisations, or
  2. there is a present or immediate risk of severe damage to the reputation of Scottish Book Trust, Scottish Storytelling Forum or the Live Literature Programme.
