What We Do – Our Projects

Books, Words, Ideas: Bringing Literature to the Streets

The Edinburgh City of Literature Trust is a development agency for Edinburgh as a City of Literature, sharing Edinburgh’s astonishing literary legacy with the world, telling the story of the city’s history, and shouting its thriving cultural scene from the rooftops. The Trust advocates literature as a civilising influence globally, and curates literary listings to show you what’s on.

Our Projects

Our activities bring Books, Words and Ideas to the streets of Edinburgh, so everyone, everywhere gets the chance to be creative with literature.

We help organisations work together more effectively and share what we do with the world, providing a local and global hub for literary activity.
