Live Literature information for partners

This page provides essential information for partners whose Live Literature applications have been approved and who will be running a Live Literature event in the near future.

First, all organisers must read the terms and conditions of your funding (download below). These are reviewed twice a year, so please check this even if you've had funding in the past. 

Live Literature and child protection

The Live Literature programme reaches 50,000 people in communities across Scotland. We estimate that over half of the events that take place involve children and vulnerable adults. A primary concern when holding any event is that it is safe as well as enjoyable, for both the author and the audience.

These terms and conditions mirror the code of conduct sent to members of the Live Literature author directory.

Please note:

Evaluation survey links

Please fill in the relevant evaluation survey within six weeks of holding your final event. Your feedback helps us to develop the programme and secure its future; thank you for taking the time to fill in this survey.
