The Book From the Inside OutThursday 26th February 2015 18:30 Old College Lecture Theatre 183, South Bridge, EH8 9YL

That’s only 40 seconds per slide for our industry experts to get you revved up and informed about the work they do!

You can get your tickets through our Eventbrite page, and as always this will be a free event for our members and for PublishED members, £3 for non-members.

6.30pm at the Old College Lecture Theatre 183

All of the books we have to give away will be wrapped up with a 3 word description written on top so you have to select one based on this very limited profile.

Next event: Writers at Pleasance

Our next event is in collaboration with Literature Society: Writers at Pleasance!

We invite you to join us at the Pleasance to hear from a variety of up-and-coming writers, both from around Edinburgh and further afield. Headlining the event are Alan Gillis and Claire Askew.

Alan Gillis is a poet and a member of the English Literature department. He has published four collections of poetry, and was recently named a "Next Generation Poet" by the the Poetry Book Society, following in the footsteps of Don Paterson and Carol Anne Duffy.

Claire Askew's poetry has appeared in numerous publications, including The Guardian, Poetry Scotland, PANK and Popshot. Her debut pamphlet, The Mermaid and the Sailors, was published in spring 2011 by Red Squirrel Press and was shortlisted for a 2010 Eric Gregory Award. She is currently reading for a PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh.

Should be an excellent evening. We hope to see you there! Link to the Faceboo…
