Are you a creative writer who enjoys penning short stories and/or poems? Vixen 101 wants to hear from you so it can celebrate the talents of writers in East Yorkshire on a regular basis. We first broadcast a programme in December, called Christmas Tales, which featured stories from residents in the East Riding, and now we want to do more. We’re looking for stories or poems for weekly slots, so they could be about events in the year such as Shrove Tuesday, Spring is coming, Easter, holidays, exams and personal achievement. Ideally, Vixen 101 would like to record Easter Tales, a show featuring your stories. If you have anything to offer, please email email@example.com.
