Tales from the Big Chair - Robin Lloyd-Jones
Joining us for a Tales from the Big Chair event is award winning writer and author Robin Lloyd-Jones.
Robin has lived in Scotland for most of his adult life, having spent his childhood in India. Robin moved to Scotland to work as an Education Adviser for Strathclyde Region and soon became part of the vibrant Scottish writing scene, serving as President of the Scottish Association of Writers (1993-1996) and President of the Scottish Branch of PEN International (1997-2000), and chairing the Writers in Prison Committee which campaigns on behalf of persecuted writers. He was for several years a tutor in Creative Writing at Glasgow University. His latest book ‘Autumn Voices‘ examines creativity in later life. Between 2015-17 Robin interviewed Scottish writers over 70 who were still actively writing. The twenty-one established writers who speak through this book show that productivity and creativity can be extended well into later life and provide role models for future generations.
