The Lit Long: Edinburgh database features 550 unique works, with over 47,000 separate mentions of more than 1,600 place names. Most of these works are out of copyright and were sourced from the major digital literature collections listed here. These were discovered through textmining, as described on our ABOUT page. We were also generously given permission to include a number of works still in copyright in our database, as detailed on the Contemporary Authors page. One original work has been included in the database – the winning entry to our Writing Edinburgh competition. You can read the story here.
