Welcome to A Word In Your Ear.   A Word In Your Ear is all about stories.  We don’t think that people spend enough time telling stories these days.  We plan to remedy that!

There’s lots of news at A Word In Your Ear Towers right now.  Our brand new comedy play THE FOURTH DOG is now ready and available to download free for your pleasure! Click here to find out more.

If you’d like to listen to more stories live, freshly written, wonderfully performed – 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 March 13th 2015 at 8.00 pm at Burdall’s Yard on the London Road.   Our theme is Quilt of Stories.  Read more about what’s coming up, and how you can join in here.

We’ve got another FREE WORKSHOP for you, linked in with our Quilt of Stories Story Friday in March.  We’ll be running a workshop in conjunction with Bath Libraries on Saturday 7th February from 10.30 to 1.00pm, at the Central Library in Bath.  It’ll be a chance for you to handle the quilt and experience some quilt and material inspired exercises.  Workshop to be run by June Wentland of Bath Libraries, and Clare Reddaway of A Word In Your Ear.  Contact Clare Reddaway at clare.reddaway@btinternet.com to book a place. NB – the workshop is now FULLY BOOKED, but if you’d like to be put on a waiting list, please get in touch.

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.

    Greetings to All at “A Word in Your Ear.” I’m a Brit living in New York and am a member of All Souls Unitarian Church here on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. We have a short story group called “Stories with Soul”, and meet every Wednesday for a reading and discussion. The whole thing takes an hour. The group was formed some 15 years ago by Warren Bryant, a radio actor. There’s an overall co-ordinator who recruits a host for any particular month. That host then picks a different reader for each Wednesday of their month. (We have a goodly stock of thespians, and plain old hams, like me.) That reader chooses his / her own story, so it’s all very democratic … and fun ! Stories range from classic through contemporary. Next week, on 10th of April, I’ll read Clare’s “The New Religion” and “The Card” by James Ross. I’m looking forward to it.
    Kind regards

    Hello, Clare

    Last evening’s reading of “The New Religion” went very well. We had a good turnout of 22 souls., and as it happened, a friend was able to tape it. Here it is :


    Hope you can open it OK.

    … and, actually I found your story on “East of the Web.” It’s an excellent site.

    With kind regards to you, and all at ” A Word in Your Ear.”
