Sam's workshops are eligible for Live Literature Funding.
Live Literature Funding is a part-funding scheme that can help you bring authors into your community. You need to apply at one of our deadlines to use Live Literature Funding to run your event.
Authors listed on our database are paid a fee of £150 and reimbursed their expenses when they carry out these events. Authors living and working in Scotland can apply to join the database at any time.
Scottish Book Trust will invoice you for half this fee after the event has taken place. This will cost you £75 per session, £90 including VAT (some organisations can reclaim VAT). Scottish Book Trust covers travel and accommodation.
What is Live Literature Funding?
Here's ten things you need to know about the programme:
Each year, over one thousand events take place across Scotland that are supported by Live Literature Funding
Use funding to bring books and stories alive - nothing creates excitement about reading and writing quite like having an author to visit
We pay all author expenses so an author can travel up to the Islands or down to the Borders for no extra cost to your project
Author events can take place anywhere in Scotland – on the seashore, in a classroom, in a forest, in a care home, at your book group, in the local hospital... the choice is yours
