The Scottish Writers’ Centre Podcast Episode 9: Transatlantic Creative Writing Showcase with Carolyn Jess-Cooke

By 15/05/2018March 10th, 2019No Comments

Last year Jamie and Mark, our excellent podcasters from Wheezy Whispers, made a podcast series with the Transatlantic Literary Women featuring recordings from their symposium at the Glasgow Women’s library. The TLW Series explores the lives and works of transatlantic women writers from the early nineteenth century to the present.

They also have an upcoming ‘”Suffrage Centenary Celebration” event from Saturday 26th – Sun 27th May at the People’s Palace Museum, and you are invited!

In recognition of this upcoming event, we’ve decided to bring you a recording of last year’s Transatlantic Creative Writing Showcase in partnership with the SWC. A fantastic selection of writers from both sides of the Atlantic joined together for an evening of poetry and prose with a transatlantic theme. The host for the evening was Carolyn Jess-Cooke, who teaches creative writing at the University of Glasgow and is a multiple award-winning author and poet in her own right. Enjoy!
