About Wee Write!
Wee Write! is the only dedicated book festival for children and families in Scotland. In 2014, its first year, the festival will include a fantastic range of events for our children, young people and families to enjoy, from a huge schools festival to a fantastic family day. Wee Write! is part of the parent festival Aye Write! – now in it’s 9th year! – but is a stand-alone programme dedicated entirely to children’s writing.
For under 10s…
For older children and young people…
