About Us


Aye Write! Glasgow's Book Festival was founded in 2005, and since 2007 has been an annual fixture on Glasgow's culture calendar. In 2015 we celebrated 10 years of Aye Write!

The festival takes place in the beautiful Mitchell Libraryone of Europe’s largest public libraries, which has been one of Glasgow’s iconic landmarks since it opened in 1911.

Aye Write! celebrates the best in national, international and local writing, and annually brings national and local speakers to Glasgow's iconic Mitchell Library, allowing audiences to enjoy appearances from big name writers ​and emerging talent alike. 

The Aye Write! programme comprises a wide range of ticketed author events for adults and children, but also extends to a schools festival, and a variety of free community and family events.

Aye Write! is organised and managed by Glasgow Libraries, Glasgow Life, with funding from Glasgow City Council and Creative Scotland. ​
