ASLS Honorary Fellowships

The ASLS was founded in 1970. It is the leading national and international organisation dedicated to the study and celebration of Scottish literature, Scottish literature’s international voice. In 2010, to mark its fortieth anniversary, the ASLS Council decided to award Honorary Fellowships to women and men who have made a substantial and distinctive contribution to the Scottish literary tradition as writers, scholars, teachers, publishers, and in other related fields. It was then recognised that during its first forty years there were many individuals whose outstanding contribution could not have been recognised in such a way, though many still served Scottish literature each in her or his own way. The Council therefore resolved that for three years it would nominate Fellows of outstanding achievement up to a total of one hundred. Thereafter it would nominate annually a significantly smaller number to ensure that the Fellowship was both up to date and that membership of it retained its significance as a special mark of signal contribution to the literatures of Scotland.

As of 25 April 2014, the following individuals have been made
