Vision: to maximise the support for an Independent Scotland in Edinburgh West.
Objectives: to educate Yes and “soft” No supporters on important political issues.
What are book previews? They are a brief, easy-to-read summary of any relevant book which is recommended or essential reading for supporters of Scottish Independence. As well as providing a normal book review, they give an idea of the contents of the book and a few quotes or conclusions.
Why would previews be useful?
· People are busy – this is a quick way to get an idea of what a book covers
· A link is always provided to enable a reader to buy the book to read it in depth
· Each book preview is individually addressable, so you can share it with friends
Governance: Yes Edinburgh West is a community-led, non-party political campaign for Scottish Independence in Edinburgh West. We are a grassroots movement, and need nobody’s permission to publish book or film previews on any subject. However (since we are under intense negative media scrutiny), we must project a positive image for the wider Yes Scotland image, and have adopted the following rules of engagement: our previews are brief, factual, avoid abusive opinions, and are checked out by at least one other Yes member for accuracy, grammar, punctuation etc. You can write on any topic you wish, provided it is relevant to our vision – and do so individually, or (preferably) as part of a group. Contact Gerry Mulvenna or Bob Glen to have them published on our website, but they are not the final arbiters on what is published – if there is any doubt, it should be discussed at a Yes Edinburgh West meeting. To keep a standard look and feel on the website, a standard font will be used (Calibri size 12). Because of the limitations of WordPress, only black text is possible. Publish them under your own name if you wish, but always provide links to Yes Edinburgh West website, Facebook and Twitter. There is also a library of useful information on our SNP branch Forums.
