FOREWORD
Since
 
its
 
establishment
 
in
 
2001,
 
the
 
Literature
 
Forum
 
for
 
Scotland,
 
the
 
independent
 
advisory
 
group
 
made
 
up
 
of 
 
the
 
main
 
literature
 
organisations
 
of 
 
Scotland
 
and
 
supported
 
by
 
the
 
Scottish
 
Arts
 
Council,
 
has
 
been
 
developing
 
Literature,
 
Nation
,
 
a
 
comprehensive
 
aspirational
 
and
 
delivery
motivated
 
ten
year
 
strategy
 
for
 
literature
 
in
 
Scotland
 
to
 
succeed
 
the
 
Scottish
 
Arts
 
Council’s

strategy
 
(in
 
the
 
creation
 
of 
 
which
 
the
 
Forum
 
also
 
played
 
a
 
major
 
part).
 
In
 
2008
 
the
 
Forum
 
became
 
one
 
of 
 
four
 
arts
 
consortia
 
in
 
Scotland
 
to
 
receive
 
a
 
major
 
grant
 
from
 
the
 
Missions,
 
Models,
 
Money
 
Design
 
for
 
Transition
 
(DEFT)
 
initiative,
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
further
 
explore
 
possibilities
 
of 
 
collaboration
 
and
 
improvement
 
in
 
structure
 
and
 
delivery.
 
The
 
process
 
of 
 
evaluation
 
and
 
policy
 
development
 
has
 
proved
 
to
 
be
 
more
 
productive
 
(and
 
enjoyable)
 
than
 
expected;
 
and
 
we
 
believe
 
that
 
the
 
results,
 
as
 
presented
 
here,
 
are
 
vital
 
contributions
 
to
 
the
 
present
 
debate
 
regarding
 
the
 
future
 
of 
 
literature
 
in
 
Scotland
 
in
 
the
 
context
 
of 
 
the
 
challenges
 
of 
 
the
 
transition
 
to
 
Creative
 
Scotland,
 
as
 
well
 
as
 
the
 
extremely
 
difficult
 
economic
 
years
 
ahead.
 
Following
 
the
 
MMM
 
discussions,
 
the
 
Forum
 
agreed
 
on
 
its
 
best
 
role
 
being
 
that
 
of 
 
an
 
advisory
 
council
 
working
 
with
 
the
 
Scottish
 
Arts
 
Council/Creative
 
Scotland.
 
Building
 
on
 
what
 
already
 
exists
 
as
 
a
 
massive
 
amount
 
of 
 
formal
 
and
 
informal
 
collaboration
 
amongst
 
member
 
groups,
 
and
 
working
 
through
 
three
 
proposal
 
and
 
delivery
 
committees,
 
representing
 
the
 
interests
 
of,
 
respectively,
 
Writers
 
and
 
Publishers,
 
Education
 
and
 
Communities,
 
and
 
International
 
and
 
Tourism,
 
the
 
advisory
 
council
 
would
 
seek
 
funding
 
for
 
its
 
major
 
projects.
 
That
 
said,
 
we
 
recognise
 
that
 
this
 
represents
 
our
 
present,
 
provisional
 
position;
 
with
 
the
 
Transition
 
Team
 
of 
 
the
 
Scottish
 
Arts
 
Council/Creative
 
Scotland
 
and
 
the
 
Government
 
Literature
 
Working
 
Group
 
yet
 
to
 
present
 
recommendations
 
as
 
to
 
the
 
future
 
structures
 
for
 
literature
 
in
 
Scotland,
 
we
 
recognise
 
the
 
need
 
to
 
remain
 
responsive
 
to
 
changed
 
circumstances,
 
and
 
to
 
develop
 
further
 
the
 
strategies
 
of 
 
collaboration
 
and
 
enterprise
 
which
 
our
 
MMM
 
deliberations
 
have
 
considerably
 
deepened
 
and
 
enriched.
