    Association for Scottish Literary Studies

    ASLS is based in the University of Glasgow and promotes the study, teaching and writing of Scotland's literatures and languages, past and present.

    We publish scholarly journals and literary criticism; new editions of classic works of Scottish literature; companions and study guides; and - with the support of Creative Scotland - New Writing Scotland, an annual anthology of the best new short fiction and poetry in Scotland today, in English, Gaelic and Scots. We also publish the free ezine The Bottle Imp.

    Each year, ASLS holds annual conferences on Scottish writers in such diverse locations as Glasgow, Kirkwall, Edinburgh and Skye. We also hold annual conferences on Scottish literature and languages in the classroom. These schools conferences are suitable for CPD (Continuous Professional Development), and attract teachers from across Scotland.

    Along with other Scottish literary organisations, and with the support of the Scottish Government, ASLS campaigns for a greater appreciation, at home and abroad, of Scotland's literary culture.
