The Scottish Writers’ Centre Podcast Episode 6: Poetry in Motion- Sharing and Discussing Poetry Films

As we said in the last episode, SWC EP 6 is going to be a little bit different. It’s going to be an audio-visual experience!

Before we get going, make sure to listen all the way to the end for an interview with Andrew Smith about the upcoming SWC anthology deadline!

Since our next event is “Short Films for Creatives,” with Lesley Traynor of Fierce Poetry in Motion on Tuesday 10th April 2018, this week’s cast is a recording from last year’s event, “Poetry In Motion: Sharing And Discussing Poetry Films” in this episode.

Throughout this episode, you’ll hear the film being introduced as normal. There will be a pause…where you’re free to pause the podcast, watch the film in question and then come back to the podcast to hear what was discussed!

You can follow Fierce Poetry in Motion on Twitter @motionpoets or contact them via email: fiercepoetrymotion@gmail.com. Their Vimeo account with all of the films featured is: https://vimeo.com/user74893934 .
