Ar Guthan (Our Voices)📢

Sgeama taic ùr a tha ag amas air guthan fo-riochdaichte taobh a‑staigh foillseachdadh Gàidhlig.

A’ cur fàilte air tagraidhean bho sgrìobhadairean Gàidhlig neo‑fhoillsichte a tha a’ fuireach ann an coimhearsnachdan nan eilean, neo ann an àite air an dùthaich nach eil faisg air baile mòr. Cuideachd, feadhainn a tha stèidhichte ann an Alba agus a tha ciorramach, LGBTQ+ (Leasbach, Gèidh, Dà-sheòrsach, Tar-ghnèitheach, Cuèir +), le eòlas san t-siostam cùraim, muinntir a tha gam meas fhèin mar Dhubh, Àisianach, neo Mion-Chinnidheach, agus/neo à dachaigh air teachd-a-steach ìosal.

***

A new project to support underrepresented voices within #Gaelic publishing.

We are particularly keen to hear from writers who live in island or rural areas, those who identify as Black, Asian or another Minority Ethnicity, as disabled, as LGBTQ+, and/or people from low-income households.

Ar Guthan is delivered by The Gaelic Books Council through funding from Creative Scotland. @creativescots

Deadline for submissions: 31 March 2022.✨
