About Scottish BAME Writers Network

NEWS: Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance: Your health and safety are our top priority. Due to concerns and guidance around Coronavirus (Covid-19), events may be cancelled or postponed at short notice. Please read more info here.

The Scottish BAME Writers Network provides advocacy, literary events and professional development opportunities for BAME writers based in or from Scotland. 

SBWN aims to connect Scottish BAME writers with the wider literary sector in Scotland. The network seeks to partner with literary organisations to facilitate necessary conversations around inclusive programming in an effort to address and overcome systemic barriers. SBWN prioritises BAME-led opportunities and is keen to bring focus to diverse literary voices while remaining as accessible as possible to marginalised groups.
