Dr. Eleanor Yule is a Scottish writer, film director and creative screenwriting lecturer at Falmouth University. Since her award-winning feature film, Blinded (2004), she has been commissioned to write numerous screenplays including drama documentaries, a feature length adaptation of a novel and a supernatural Rom Com. She has recently completed a practice based PhD in screenwriting where she proposes a new methodology, 'sensorial femmage', for the writing of Medieval films. Her most recent book publication was the co-authored with Dr David Manderson, The Glass Half Full - Moving Beyond Scottish Miserablism (Luath Press, 2014), which looked at the impact of social realism in film and literature within Scottish culture.
