Wee Write 2022
Wee Write Book Festival in Glasgow Monday 25 to Friday 29 April, 2022
Saturday 30 April will see the return of Wee Write Family Day.
Six days of inspiring, fun-packed events for little people with big imaginations.
Live In-Person Events Return
Returning for live in-person events for the first time since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and at an earlier time than normal (25-30 April), the Wee Write line-up kicks off with the Schools’ Programme, running from Monday 25 through to Friday 29 April. Venues include Glasgow’s iconic Mitchell Library, as well as public libraries in and around the city.
The Wee Write Schools’ Programme
The Wee Write Schools’ Programme is packed with fun and educational events for pre-school, primary and secondary school-aged children and young people, including storytellers Vivian French MBE and Alan Windram; illustrator Kate McLelland; TV and news journalist Nick Sheridan; artist Catherine Rayner; graphic novel duo Metaphrog, AKA, Sandra Marrs and John Chalmers; and the ever-entertaining Danny Wallace.
The week-long programme is available to all Glasgow City Council schools and nurseries. Tickets to events within the Wee Write programme have also been donated to local groups and charities, giving more children and young people the opportunity to access live events on their doorstep.
Wee Write Programmer, Fiona Haddow, said:
“We are excited to bring the magic of books with live authors, storytellers and more, back to enthral and inspire the children of Glasgow. Our packed Family Day programme has a wonderful mix of ticketed and free events for all the family to enjoy. We really look forward to seeing you there!”
Scott Webb, Regional Manager at UKSE, which is also sponsoring Wee Write, said:
“Wee Write does a consistently brilliant job of getting children engaged with books and reading. We welcome the opportunity to partner with the festival again, especially as the programme returns to its full live status.
“Our support will enable 200 pupils from the Cambuslang area to attend a Wee Write event and take home a book to extend their experience. We firmly believe that investing in literacy now will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the next generation.”
The full programmes are available on the Aye Write website.
