Moffat Book Events fosters events for book lovers,  literature, and poetry in Moffat and its area. 

Moffat from Gallow Hill

We work with published authors and aspiring writers and poets, through events, courses and partnerships with other organisations, including Book Trust Scotland, Wigtown Book Festival, and the Old Bakehouse. 

We  encourage Scottish and local authors and artists, as well as welcoming artists from all over the UK and further afield. We have a fruitful relationship with Russia through the State Library for Foreign Literature, and have hosted 3 Russian conferences in Moffat.
