Chhildren and teenagers across Craigmillar are sharpening their pencils, ready for the 18th Craigmillar Book Festival which starts on Monday 17 November, tying in with Book Week Scotland.

Nick Sharratt, Lari Don, Jonathan Meres, Metaphrog, Alison Murray, Janis MacKay, Ruth Kirkpatrick and Eric Brennan will be appearing at Craigmillar Library and schools and nurseries across Craigmillar to share their top tips on how everyone can develop their own stories.
The Festival runs from Monday 17 to Friday 29 November and has been made possible with generous support from Scottish Book Trust, Dr David Summers Charitable Trust, The Rosamunde Pilcher Charitable Trust, Siobhan Dowd Trust, Prestonfield House, Sir James Miller [ Edinburgh] Trust, The Edinburgh Bookshop and the Big Lottery.
