Scottish Writers

Scottish Writers first began in 1998 as a virtual group of aspiring writers taking part in a variety of publishing, production and broadcasting projects based in Lanarkshire. We produced 10 editions of 'Now You Know' in both newspaper and digital format, followed by 2 printed anthologies and a plethora of newsletters and e-zines. Our writers were responsible for the first ever exclusively online newspaper in Scotland, 'Lanarkshire News', which was set up as part of Now You Know. (ISSN 1745-3402) Alongside Now You Know, we also published an alternative magazine known as Paranoid Times.

In 2004, we relocated to the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland, to Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town, from where we still provide research, writing and publishing services, while hosting our online writers' group.

We offer writing services to individuals and companies, including research, ghost writing, editing, proofreading, sports writing, SEO web content and blogging.

Work is now underway to create our first writers' retreat, offering accommodation and inspirational space at a price you can afford. To keep up with news of this, follow the Frugal Breaks page on Facebook.
