Hampden & Co sponsors New Writers Awards Showcase

Hampden & Co is proud to support Scottish Book Trust as sponsor of their ‘New Writers Awards Showcase 2024’.

Each year, Scottish Book Trust awards financial support, mentoring and practical expertise to selected emerging writers, helping them to develop their craft as they seek to publish their work. The Showcase event held in Edinburgh spotlights the award-winners across eleven categories, each of whom takes to the stage to read excerpts of their writing to an appreciative audience. You can read about this years’ awardees here.

Speaking about the sponsorship, Mark Prentice, Head of Private Banking, Scotland, said:

“Scottish Book Trust is a national charity which works to inspire learning and creativity through reading and writing. We share their belief that books, reading and writing have the power to change lives. We have clients who are authors and many who are avid readers, so we were delighted to sponsor an event that promotes a vibrant art scene.”

Marc Lambert, CEO of Scottish Book Trust, said:

“We are incredibly grateful to Hampden & Co for supporting our annual New Writers Awards Showcase, which was a fantastic sell-out event. The Showcase is major date in our calendar and is vital to supporting emerging talent and allowing new writers to thrive.
