NWR Goes Multimedia (06-02-2014)
NWR is about to get into producing podcasts, audio clips and feature-length videos from literary Wales
Exciting plans are afoot at NWR to produce editorial content in multi-media formats. These will include broader and deeper insights into literary Wales. In a new addition to our already existing author showcase of text interviews, we will offer in-depth, feature-length interviews on film of NWR contributors, kicking off in March with BBC National Short Story nominee and Bangor lecturer, Lisa Blower, accompanied by poet, sailor and national treasure Gwyneth Lewis, both contributors to the spring edition, NWR 103, published on 1 March.
Other formats in production include a half-hour magazine-style audio podcast featuring a fiction author or poet talking about and reading from their latest book, a reading-group discussion on the latest titles, and a roving report on publishing and the non-fiction scene. Also in the pipeline are dedicated audio clips with poetry and fiction readings by authors and rolling forthcoming highlights features offering a preview into the upcoming edition.
