Why join the Scots Language Society?

By joining us, you are helping us to champion the Scots language, especially by giving Scots writers a place to learn from one another and to find their own Scots voice.

In addition, members get biannual issues of our unique Lallans magazine gratis, and have the right to attend our Annual Conferences, where we hold our AGM and enjoy talks from highly regarded speakers on thought-provoking subjects relating to Scots language and literature.

If what you’re looking for is a community of prose-writers, poets, playwrights and translators with a passion for the Scots language, we have no equal. We are the oldest extant Scots-language activist organisation and the only one solely dedicated to the development of new Scots literature.
