More Paisley Review than Paris Review, GlasgowWriters.com is a new website featuring contemporary writers living and working in the city of Glasgow.
The site kicks off with in-depth video interviews with three of Glasgow’s most interesting writers:
- Anne Donovan, author of Hieroglyphics And Other Stories, the Orange Prize-listed novel, Buddha Da and forthcoming Being Emily
- Louise Welsh, the award-winning author of The Cutting Room, Tamburlaine Must Die and The Bullet Trick
- Rodge Glass, author of the novels No Fireworks and the forthcoming Hope for Newborns as well as the much awaited Alasdair Gray: A Secretary’s Biography
In addition to the interviews, the site also includes the authors reading from their most recent work.
Please let us know what you think of the site by leaving comments in the appropriate places.
And finally, although some computers will be fine, because I’ve not been using professional-standard equipment, I’d advise you to use amplified computer speakers or headphones if you can. The audio on future interviews will be better… promise!
