Stratford Words


Live Literature from the Heart of Warwickshire!


This week

This Sunday we'll be talking about memoir, one of the most popular and intriguing genres around today. With me in the studio will be Cathy Whittaker and Connie Ramsey-Bott, both experienced writers and teachers of memoir, and I'll have an excerpt from a long interview I did with Cathy Rentzenbrink, whose memoir The Last act of Love was a huge bestseller, promoted by Richard and Judy and praised by just about everyone. The full interview with Cathy is here.

Tune in this Sunday, 4pm.

PS While I'm here, my collection of tales, Song For the Ferryman is now available in paperback from Amazon!. Perfect for Christmas!

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.
