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 September 19th at 8.00 pm at Burdall’s Yard on the London Road. Our theme is Clean Slate. We’ve got some fab stories – moving, funny, charming – set in slate mines in Wales, in a Victorian schoolroom museum, in a multitude of flats in London, in a potter’s studio. We’re looking forward to hearing from Tricia Wastvedt, Julie Hayman, Clare Reddaway, Doc Watson, Ben Sixsmith and Anne Corlett, and we’ve got Olly Langdon, Caroline Garland and Steph Weston reading for us. Angus Hackett is on the guitar. It promises to be a good night!
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.
