Creative Writing Show Launches with Easter Special

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 admin@vixen101.co.uk, or posted to Telling Tales, Vixen 101, 34a High Street, Market Weighton, YO43 3AH.
