raised of £1,000 target by 9 supporters

    Weʼve raised £270 to contribute toward the design, printing and distribution of Leith Writing's 2023 annual creative writing anthology

    Leith, Scotland
    Funded on Wednesday, 24th April 2024

    Don't have time to donate right now?



    Surely there could not be a more appropriate call from Leith Writings to local authors and those who wish to write about this special place?

    Here we are in our third year. First there was "The Darting Salamander'", a collection of writings brought together to celebrate 100 years since the amalgamation of Leith and Edinburgh.

    Then came "The Seagull At The Shore", an anthology of 26 fresh writings for, by, and about Leith.

    And so to 2023. our inspiration this year revolves around 'Persevere!' Never was a word more apt for Leith, and apt for this annual project.

    How can you help us?

    Please consider contributing toward the costs involved in the design, printing, and distribution of the new work. We estimate that £1,500 will be close to the mark and invite you to help us reach that target.

    The 2023 anthology is not yet named, but whatever name should emerge from the writings, the book will be launched on November 2nd 2023.

    As in previous years we would just stress that no one in the group receives any remuneration or reimbursement for their efforts. All are enthusiastic volunteers who love Leith, and love creative writing.

    And the printed copies are distributed completely free within the Leith community. Money should never be a barrier to the enjoyment of the creative arts.

    All contributions are most warmly welcomed.

    Rob Levick, Finance Officer, Leith Writings
