About The Event

Mallaig book festival

We are thrilled to be able to hold our Write Highland Hoolie again this November in the comfort of the lovely West Highland Hotel, Mallaig as before. Our line-up of authors for 2018, as in our previous years, is again fabulous - a selection of exciting genres guaranteeing  something for everyone, and for all ages. We will be announcing authors shortly,  and hope you will be tempted to come along and join us. We will also be running our popular feature writing workshop with Scots Magazine editor, Robert Wight, holding competitions for childrens’ art and creative writing, and hosting  author events specially for pupils at Mallaig High School. Our evenings will be filled with great craic and wonderful music. We will open this year’s Hoolie at 5pm on Friday 9th November, and bring the packed weekend of literary celebration, fine food and music to a close on Sunday after tea.  We are grateful once again for the support of the Moidart Trust, as well as the numerous other generous sponsors, including the Scottish Book Trust, who make it all possible. We very much hope you can join us again for what we guarantee will indeed be,

A Write Highland Hoolie!
