Full-time manager of Edinburgh city of literature

THE Edinburgh Unesco City of Literature initiative has appointed a new full-time development manager, reports The Scotsman.

Sophy Dale will join the team on March 7 and will work in partnership with other organisations such as the Edinburgh City Council, the Scottish Executive and Scottish Arts Council.
After Unesco officially designated Edinburgh as the first City of Literature in October, the project is now entering a crucial phase.

Ms Dale will identify and co-ordinate activities and initiatives associated with the designation, and help to build a new international network of cities of literature under Unesco’s Global Alliance programme.

In the coming months the project will be announcing some of the confirmed core projects, which include an international seminar and a city-wide reading campaign.
