Aye Write! Glasgow’s literary festival returns for 2017

Glasgow’s esteemed literary festival is returning for its 12th year this March and looks set to put an eclectic mix of brand new, emerging and established writers in the spotlight. 

Aye Write is back! The 2017 book festival is set to begin on the 9th of March, bringing together authors, readers, and enthusiasts across three venues in the city.

If you are looking to improve as a writer there will be a series of workshops and seminars lead by professional playwrights and authors. Sessions include creative writing, writing for comics and graphic novels, and an open mic night for the poets out there, to name a few.
