The Scottish Writers’ Centre

The Scottish Writers’ Centre aims to be a Scotland-wide resource, to bring writers together, and spread information about our vibrant literary culture. The SWC is run solely by volunteers, therefore By Writers, For Writers and aims to provide a space where writers can meet and share ideas and experiences about the craft of writing and learn from those further advanced. Central to that are the new facilities and activities arranged with the support of the CCA (Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow) where we are currently based.

Founded in 2007, the magazine is named for a collection of poetry by Glasgow's own Edwin Morgan. FGtS aims to publish the best short works by members of the university community. Writers are encouraged to submit poems, drama and short stories in any genre or style, whether developed independently or in conjunction with formal workshops and classroom exercises.
