Please note that due to the COVID-19 Lockdown, HighlandLIT events are not currently taking place. Watch this space for news of a resumption of meetings 'when this is all over.'

In the meantime  the HighlandLIT Committee are looking at ways of delivering something of the HighlandLIT experience on-line, and we're able to announce a new initiative.  Jayne Austin has set up a Youtube channel to which you can submit video recordings of your work - it's a kind of virtual Open Mic.  Full details below.

The Committee are holding in mind all HighlandLIT members and friends at this time. Please take care - and keep in touch with one another and with us. As Committee members we are drawing support from each other in these days of isolation.  If you need  encouragement, or a chat on the phone, please do contact us at

This is also the time of year when we invite members and friends to sign up to HighlandLIT for the 12 months April 2020 until March 2021. Click here for information on how to do this.
