Scotland’s first ever festival for Scottish women’s writing returns for its fifth edition! This year we’ll be inviting the world to Open the Door again, as we host the festival entirely online.

Inspired by Glasgow’s long history of bold, creative women, our theme this year will be writers who are artists and artists who are writers, and we’ll be celebrating how they weave these two practices together.

From workshops to nurture your own creativity, to convivial conversations to inspire and illuminate, our Festival will open the doors into the worlds of reading, writing and art. Featuring contemporary writers and artists including Amanda Thomson, Kate Charlesworth and Sabba Khan, and spotlighting the work of historic writers and artists Wendy Wood, Edith Simon and Zarina Hashmi, this is a Festival like no other.

Open the Door 2021 is supported by the Open University in Scotland and the British Council.

The full line up and bookings will go live at the end of March at
