Writers’ Reel Episode 7 – Tom Hubbard

For this week’s Writers’ Reel, our 7th episode, I had the pleasure of talking to Tom Hubbard. Tom is an author, poet and literary scholar, who came to the Scottish Writers’ Centre back in January to discuss his latest book “Slavonic Dances”. Tom explores how the clash and blend of cultures can feed creativity and imagination in writing, as in his own work Scottish characters encounter Eastern European ones with varying results, both comic and tragic. We discussed translation, or as he prefers to call it “Trans-creation”, as well as his working methods and how he developed a love of Scottish Literature. Happy viewing!

My apologies for the slightly distorted sound at the beginning of this video, we experienced some problems with the microphone.

As always, your comments and feedback are welcomed below.
