Podcast ~ Episode 7: Negative Capability

In this episode, we consider different aspects of the publishing world - from the perspective of an author, an agent and a publisher.

Author Michèle Roberts discusses her new book Negative Capability, a candid and refreshing honest diary of a year in which she delves into the daily world of an artist and explores the relationships with her agent and publisher following their rejection of her novel.

We also talk to two prominent figures in the Scottish literary scene, Jenny Brown of Jenny Brown Associates and Francis Bickmore, Publishing Director of Canongate Books, to get their insight into the publishing world during lockdown and their thoughts about what readers might expect after restrictions are lifted.

Incidental music by Ragland. Produced by Colin Fraser.
