Scots Whay Hae! & EIBF Present The Celebrating Inclusion Podcast...

Updated: Aug 22



The latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast is the first of three collaborations with the Edinburgh International Book Festival for this year's Festival. Ahead of their own event - Celebrating Inclusion (Thu 25 Aug 19:00 - 20:15) - Ali spoke to writers Ever Dundas and Julie Farrell to learn more about the event, and the Inklusion Guide, which they have created to help event organisers better understand accessibility for disabled writers, audience members, and others.


It's a fascinating and insightful conversation about an area of the "Business of Books" (the name of the series that this event is part of) that is too often overlooked. Ever and Julie offer advice and anecdotes, as well as talking about their own experiences, hopes for the future, and what they are looking forward to at this year's book festival.



The event, which will celebrate the launch of their guide, will be chaired by Sinéad Burke, disability activist and founder of Tilting the Lens. Ever and Julie will be joined by industry figures including Jenny Kumar (Literature Alliance Scotland) and Zaahida Nabagereka (Head of Social Impact at Penguin Random House UK). With a special performance reading from writer and poet Jeda Pearl.
