What the organisers (quite rightly) describe as “a celebration of Scottish literature and live music” takes place at Stereo in Glasgow, from Thursday 17th February to Sunday 20th February.

Cargo Publishing are the hosts for Margins – four days of live performance by a fairly impressive range of writers and music acts from Scotland.
Among the 30-plus writers and musicians are Liz
Lochhead, Tom Leonard, Ewan Morrison, Doug Johnstone, Alan Bissett

and Rodge Glass, as well as upcoming names like Andrew Raymond Drennan, Kirstin Innes, Anneliese Mackintosh, Kirsty
and Allan Wilson.
Ah yes, the music element: playing live will be Withered Hand, Burnt Island and Where We Lay Our Heads.
