HighlandLIT online: work from members

In response to the evolving situation re COVID-19 and in an effort to create a different platform from which to promote the work of HighlandLIT members and supporters from the wider community,   we created a dedicated Vimeo account. 


You can view the channel here. This is an opportunity to post video clips of recordings of work, links to websites and other social media and thereby reach a wider audience.


If this is something you would like to take advantage of then please email text/info to

this email address and forward larger files, (pref MP4 format) via wetransfer or similar.


Jayne will manage the account and upload files on your behalf. There is no limit to the number of videos which can be posted but please restrict the file size to around 5 to 10 minutes to minimise the time it takes to upload files.

HighlandLit meets regularly in Inverness

Bringing together those with an interest in all things to do with the written word and the wider world of publishing, HighlandLit provides a valuable opportunity to discuss projects, books, ideas and attend workshops


It also encourages members and guests to meet and ask questions of published writers and poets, and hear them read from their work
