keyboardactivists.jpgWe’re launching our annual crowd fund appeal today – and asking for your support. We’ve tried to up our game in the last year and have ambitious plans for expanding our content in 2016/17 (see here for a sample of them).

Next month we’ll be producing our first book (in lovely old-fashioned print!), launching our regular club night and producing our first ever podcast. We have plans for a new writers apprenticeship scheme and a ‘blog school’ to help develop and support writers and content creators.

PLEASE GO HERE TO SUPPORT US – DONATE and SHARE. 

Elaine C Smith has said that:

“Bella Caledonia gives a voice to a huge number of people across Scotland. It provides gathering place for ideas, opinions, thoughts and observations about who we are and where we are going. It offers an alternative view of the way we should and could live as well as allowing a creativity and opinion stifled by the mainstream press and media”. 

Our main aim is to help democratise the media by creating a space for new writers and new voices.  Here’s just some of those we’ve published since 2007:
