Scots Whay Hae! & EIBF Present The Shaping Scotland's Stories: New Voices Podcast...



The latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast is the second of our collaborations with the Edinburgh International Book Festival . It is the Shaping Scotland's Stories: New Voices podcast, a companion to the live event of the same name.


There are interviews with eight representatives from a variety of publishers who tell us all about who they are, what they do, the challenges and rewards of working with new literary voices, and the books they are currently excited about.


As well as those core conversations we also talk to the Executive Director of the Edinburgh Book Festival Sophie Moxon, and Vikki Reilly from Publishing Scotland.


Put together it makes for a fascinating insight into, and overview of, publishing in Scotland today, and has some great advice for writers both old, but mainly new, and we hope you'll be encouraged to investigate all the publishers, their books, and their writers further, which you can do by visiting edbookfest.co.uk & publishingscotland.org or by clicking on the publisher links below...


The interviewees (pictured above) include:


Heather McDaid (404 Ink) - Rebecca Wojturska (Haunt Publishing) - Sara Hunt (Saraband) - Finlay Robson (Arkbound) - Anne Glennie (Cranachan Publishing) - Nathaniel Kunitsky (Knight Errant) - Samuel McDowell (Charco Press) - Sha Nazir (BHP Comics)


You can still view the Celebrating Inclusion podcast with writers Ever Dundas and Julie Farell, and soon to come is the Scottish Spoken Word Showcase Podcast which will have interviews with, and performances from, six Spoken Word performers.
