Stratford Words


Live Literature from the Heart of Warwickshire!


This week

This week I have two wonderful guests. Nigel Hutchinson is a poet whose new collection, The Humble Family Interviews is just published by Cinnamon Press. He's also involved with curating the beautiful exhibition at the Herbert Gallery in Coventry Journeys With Th Wasteland, which gathers paintings an other works reflecting on T.S. Eliot's marvelous poem. And I have Sharon Carr with me. Sharon is a wonderful storyteller and co-founder of StoryVibes, who performs her stories all over the West Midlands. Join us this Sunday at 4pm

Nick Le Mesurier

I've been writing for many years: plays (particularly monologues), stories, and nature writing. Some of my plays have been professionally performed, and I recently produced a music and drama show in aid of The Charterhouse, Coventry.

I have many jobs, but one of my favourites is to write theatre reviews for the Leamington Courier, which allows me to see sometimes three shows a week!  Stratford Words is my first foray into broadcasting and I'm loving the challenge of working with writers of all sorts and of creating a show that reflects the wealth of talent in and around Stratford and also introduces a little something extra each week.
