New Writing Scotland is the principal forum for poetry and short fiction in Scotland today. Every year it publishes the very best from both emerging and established writers, and lists many of the leading literary lights of Scotland among its past (and present) contributors. Available this summer, The Rooftop Busker: New Writing Scotland 33 is the latest collection of excellent contemporary literature, drawn from a wide cross-section of Scottish culture and society, and includes new work from more than fifty authors – some award-winning and internationally renowned, and some just beginning their careers.
