On this World Book Day 2021, our publishing imprint Merchiston Publishing is proud to announce THREE new books to be published by our MSc Publishing postgraduate students.

Working with industry, literary and academic partners, our students will publish and launch three new anthologies this year:

1. Fortunate Voyager, A Celebration of Robert Louis Stevenson – a collaboration with the Robert Louis Stevenson Club
2. Lost, Looking & Found – an anthology of prose, poetry and images, featuring writers and artists from Edinburgh Literary Salon
3. Learning in Lockdown (working title)Napier Big Read anthology, showcasing the creativity of students and staff across Edinburgh Napier University

These books are the first of their kind. They will demonstrate the incredible talents of our MSc Publishing students, and are testament to our strong links with industry partners and literary organisations.
