The Scottish Writers’ Centre will be holding regular events at the CCA in Glasgow from Thursday, 21 January 2010.

Full details of events between now and the Spring should be available later this week.

First up, on 21 January, is writer and translator Donal McLaughlin.

Donal will read from his recent book – an allergic reaction to national anthems & other stories (argyll) – as well as from his translations, which include the poems of Stella Rotenberg and an extract from the latest novel by Nobel prize winner Herta Müller. Donal has also translated over fifty Swiss authors for inclusion in various anthologies. For further information about Donal and his work, visit

In the second part of this event, those present will have the opportunity to discuss issues relating to translation, including working with a translator / interpreter and doing events abroad.

Please join us.

VENUE: CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow

TIME: 7pm on Thursday, 21 January


The event will finish by 8.30pm – but discussions can continue in the bar.

Copies of Donal’s book will be on sale.

The Scottish Writers’ Centre is grateful to the CCA and to Culture & Sport Glasgow for their generous support of its work.
