Presenter Julie Barker says: “Our new, monthly creative writing show on Vixen 101 has already attracted stories from local people and thank you for your response. The first show was broadcast on Easter Saturday and was great fun to put together, especially with some fantastic music from the 80s. The aim of the show is to give creative writers amongst us a chance to learn from each other and enjoy our work. As you will hear from the first one, there are contributions from Karl Sheridan in Holme Upon Spalding Moor, Liz Sullivan in Pocklington, Christine Williams in North Ferriby and me. Plus my special guest was Ali Cargill from Millington. I hope you enjoy the show and please email me with feedback.
I will be back with the next show on Saturday 17th May at 4pm. Happy writing.

Easter Tales, Saturday 19th April, 4pm.
Creative writers across East Yorkshire will have a new platform for their work with the launch of a dedicated radio show from this month.
Vixen 101 is to air Telling Tales, a one-hour programme devoted to local writing, such as short stories and poetry. The show, hosted by writer Julie Barker, will also include an interview with a local author and a round-up of workshops, events and competitions. It is to be broadcast at 4pm on the middle Saturday of each month, initially until October, on 101.8FM in the Western Wolds and online & via mobile phones everywhere. The programme will also be available to download from this website, www.vixen101.co.uk.
Julie says: “Many creative writers don’t have an outlet for their work so this radio show will give them an opportunity for stories to be heard. I also want to encourage sharing ideas of good practice. You can give a group the same title for a story or poem and it’s amazing how different people’s styles are.”
Julie talks about the new programme to Rachael Campey on Sunday Brunch
The first programme, a special called Easter Tales, includes an interview with author and teacher Ali Cargill from Millington near Pocklington, plus contributions from writers in Holme Upon Spalding Moor, Pocklington, Elloughton, York and North Ferriby.
Vixen 101 Station Manager Paul Stellings says: “Creative writing has been a growing part of our output so it was a logical progression to devote more time to work with local writers. There’s nothing quite like the buzz of having your stories or poems broadcast and I look forward to more writers submitting their work.”
Stories or poems can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or posted to Telling Tales, Vixen 101, 34a High Street, Market Weighton, YO43 3AH.
