Writers’ Reel Series Finale- Lesley Traynor

By 08/05/2018May 24th, 2020One Comment

Today brings you the 9th installment and the series finale of Writers’ Reel! This week’s episode features writer, artist and film maker extraordinaire Lesley Traynor. Lesley came to the Scottish Writers’ Centre in April to deliver her event ‘Short films for Creatives’, giving advice on how to make a short video to represent a piece of writing. She kindly agreed to chat with me about making poetry films, including how she began representing poems in visual formats, and the role music can play in our understanding of a poem. If you are interested in using visual art to represent literary work, this one’s for you!  

With the end of this series comes the end of my time at the Scottish Writers’ Centre. I sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed tapping into the minds of writers through my videos. I’ve certainly enjoyed making them. Keep your eyes peeled for the next series!

  • Jess,

    Thank you so much for all you have done to support and promote us writers. I am deeply grateful.
    A link to SWC and the excellent wee video you did of me blethering behind scenes has been posted up onto my website :
    I will add your name as producer to it.
    Best of luck in whatever new venture you are moving towards.
