A special Creative Conversations event co-hosted by Publishing Scotland and the Creative Writing Programme at University of Glasgow, showcasing the best in new Scottish writing. Themed around memoirs, this year’s event will feature six of Scotland’s best authors who have published work in 2022.

The featured authors are:

Cynthia Rogerson (Wah! Things I Never Told My Mother, Sandstone Press)

Carrie Marshall (Carrie Kills a Man, 404 Ink)

Mark Woolhouse (The Year The World Went Mad, Sandstone Press)

Chitra Ramaswamy (Homelands: The History of a Friendship, Canongate)

Trishna Singh (A Silent Voice Speaks, Fledgling Press)

Malachy Tallack (Illuminated by Water, Doubleday)

Held at the historic University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel, doors will open at 17:30, with the main event running from 17:45 – 19:30. Each author will give a reading from their work, as well as fielding questions from the event hosts and audience.

The showcase is free with refreshments provided, and there will be an opportunity for mingling after the readings and interviews. Each of the authors’ books will be on sale courtesy of John Smith’s bookshop at University of Glasgow.

Creative Conversations is supported by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
