The Scottish Writers’ Centre Episode 14: The Burrell Story- History as Poetry with Sally Evans

We have some exciting news about our confirmed events for the rest of the summer, we’ve really missed you and we can’t wait to see you again, face to face!

We have found our summer holiday home, and it’s not too far away either: our next few events will be at The Project Café, 134 Renfrew Street, Glasgow!
You can find out the details in this episode or have a look at our events page on Facebook.

For this week’s podcast, we take you back to an event we held last August. Sally Evans came to the Scottish Writers’ Centre to discuss her latest poetry collection, A Burrell Tapestry and a Marion Burrell Sampler, which takes a look at the lives of Glasgow’s Burrell family.

You will hear Sally consider how research affects poetry’s creation; how a real story can be brought to life by poetic imagination and lots more. And if that wasn’t enough, writer AC Clarke joins Sally and performs some readings too! Enjoy!


Thank you to Sally Evans and AC Clarke. You’ll be hearing more from both writers in future episodes!

The blog about this event, written by Maeve O’Brien, is on the SWC website along with an interview with Sally. She was featured in our first series of Writers’ Reel too!

Thank you to the team at the SWC for their contribution and help with coordinating this podcast series.

This podcast was recorded and produced by Wheezy Whispers.
