Amanda Mitchison & Lucy Moore

Glencoe

Amanda Mitchison explores her entanglement with Scottish history, and Lucy Moore ponders the choosing of biographical subjects. Amanda Mitchison shares the ways she’s entwined with Scottish history, and how one of Scotland’s great historical outrages reached through time to shape the course of her novel. Lucy Moore explores the challenges of choosing a subject, the dangers of identifying too closely, and how she looks for stories that both allure her and also urgently need telling.
