Promoting Writing In Scotland since 1969.
The Scottish Association of Writers is an organisation that has been promoting writing in Scotland since 1969. Every year, SAW holds an Annual Conference in March which can be attended by writers who are members of Clubs affiliated to the Association. A list of Clubs currently affiliated can be found on the Clubs page. If your Club would like more information about joining the Association, contact the Affiliation Secretary Lesley Deschner .
At the Conference, where everyone is assured a warm welcome, there are competitions for a wide range of categories, guest speakers, workshops and evening events.
The SAW has helped and is supported by writers such as Margaret Thomson Davis, Catherine McPhail, Alex Gray, Gillian Philip and current Honorary President Alanna Knight
