Welcome to A Word In Your Ear. Thanks for dropping in.
A Word In Your Ear is all about stories. We don’t think that people spend enough time telling stories these days.
We think stories are one of the best ways to explore what it means to be human. We think stories help us to answer fundamental questions like ‘what are we doing here?’ and ‘was it cosy in the Middle Ages?’ We also think that stories are fun.
We like the way our ancestors enjoyed stories – by listening to them.
So we run Story Fridays in our local town, Bath, here in Somerset. Every couple of months we gather a group of writers and invite people to listen to what inspires them about a theme. Our next event is coming up on Friday January 17th at 8.00 pm at Burdall’s Yard on the London Road. Our theme is Blue. Does Blue make you shiver? Or does it transport you to the Aegean on a blazing hot summer’s day? Does it conjure up the haunting notes of a sax player in the dusk of a New Orleans evening? Or make you think of the sky blue eyes of the one you love? The possiblilities for this Story Friday are wide open and we know that we’ll have a varied and high quality selection of stories in January.
Maybe you’d like to submit a story? Or come along and hear how our writers have been inspired? Either way, we’d love to hear from you.
Get in touch if you’d like to be involved.
Thank you for visiting, come again soon.
A Word In Your Ear is proud to be funded by Bath and North East Somerset Council.
