Jenny Niven in The List ‘Hot 100’

The List magazine's rundown of the top Scottish cultural contributors, ‘The Hot 100’, has just been released for 2023 and we’re proud to announce our new Director, Jenny Niven makes a star appearance in the top ten.

Editor at The List magazine Brian Donaldson added: “It’s been another special year for culture within Scotland… There’s nothing predictable or safe about our Top 10 and we believe it encapsulates what makes Scottish culture so unique and exciting.”

An annual barometer for talent in Scottish arts and culture, this year’s ‘Hot 100’ is topped by Mercury Prize and three-time Scottish Album of the Year Award-winning musicians Young Fathers. Joining Jenny in the top ten is Booker-longlisted novelist Martin MacInnes who joined us at the Book Festival this summer to discuss his latest novel, In Ascension. Many more 2023 Book Festival participants are featured in the Hot 100, including Hannah Lavery, Simone Seales, K. Patrick, Becky Sikasa, Katie Goh, Peter Ross, and Douglas MacIntyre.
