The grant is designed to cover publishing costs such as editing, advances, illustrations and cover design, typesetting, printing and marketing.
About the grant
The grant aims to support publishers seeking assistance with:
- Publishing new work, including translated texts
- Reprinting existing historical or culturally significant work
- Effective marketing and promotion of existing and new work
Since launching in 2019, the grant has supported the publication of a brilliant range of Scots books, including both new work and translated texts. Learn more about the books published through the grant.
