Frustrated by literature events not being made accessible, disabled writers Julie Farrell and Ever Dundas conceived the Inklusion Guide, a useful resource for event organisers. This event celebrating the launch of their guide is chaired by Sinéad Burke, disability activist and founder of Tilting the Lens. Farrell and Dundas come together with industry figures including Jenny Kumar (Literature Alliance Scotland) and Zaahida Nabagereka (Head of Social Impact at Penguin Random House UK). With a special performance reading from writer and poet Jeda Pearl.
While it is not a legal requirement, we are mindful that clinically vulnerable people may be in attendance at this event and therefore encourage mask wearing. Masks will be available on the door.
