LitLong Edinburgh – making paths through a literary city
18 November, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
LitLong Edinburgh is a unique way of putting the city’s literary history on the map. Working with huge collections of digitised books and with selected publishers, a dataset has been created of around 50,000 excerpts from stories, novels, memoirs, and travel writing which make Edinburgh their setting. But a map is a still thing – cities are places of movement. In this boots-on event, come along to meet writers, artists and critics who together will trace out some of the many dimensions of literary path-making – from trailblazing to orienteering, and from charging ahead to meandering along.
