The Edinburgh Literary Salon, the renowned Edinburgh writers’ group, in collaboration with Merchiston Publishing, has published their first anthology: Lost, Looking & Found.

This unique collection honours Edinburgh’s literary heritage, with contributions from well-known literary luminaries, as well as emerging writers.

ISBN: 978-1-911524-01-4

Ideas of rebirth and renewal are explored through prose, poetry, and more. From a revolutionary game of hockey to virtual-reality dating, from reflections on parenthood to celebrations of Scotland’s landscapes, Lost, Looking & Found is an intrepid venture demonstrating what a contemporary ‘Renaissance’ means today.

Our book was launched at Edinburgh International Book Festival.
