The Scottish Writers’ Centre Podcast is here! Recorded and edited by Mark and Jamie of Wheezy Whispers, these episodes are shortened versions of the events the Writers’ Centre hosts every two weeks. As our archive on the website grows, we hope to deliver highlights from these events in audio format. To give you a taster of what’s to come, we’ve started off with a short interview with Mark and Jamie covering the basics of what we want the cast to achieve. We’ll be releasing new episodes throughout the year, which you’ll find on our podcast page here.
The podcast is now one of the most popular formats for entertainment and learning, though the possibilities of their relationship with literature is still underexplored. The SWC Podcast hopes to bring the work of our speakers to an easily accessible form, giving you their talks and readings for your own convenience. As drama, poetry, and the oral tradition will tell us, literature spoken aloud can be just as, if not more, effective, than text in a book. As this project begins, the Scottish Writers’ Centre hopes to show that literature isn’t just the words on the page.
We hope you enjoy the episodes as they are released,
Mark, Jamie, and Alastair
