Pop-up shop for local writers

Local writers will have a chance to showcase and sell their books at WagTongues, a pop-up shop in Wigtown on Sunday, October 6, at 26 South Main Street (the Machars Initiative Centre). As well as selling local writers’ books, pamphlets and magazines there will also be a number of 10-minute readings/meet-the-author slots.

WagTongues is the brainchild of the newly established Writers’ Collective which aims to help D&G-based writers find outlets for their work.

Poet JoAnne McKay said: “Local authors are not an integral part of the Wigtown Book Festival so WagTongues provides an opportunity for them to sell their work. It gives festival-goers a chance to meet and hear some of the many talented writers who live in the region.”

Anyone who would like their work to be on sale email JoAnne McKay on wagtongues@aol.com.
