Charlie’s Angels: 24 Years of Writing Together
May 28 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

If you are looking for a writing group in the Otago area, or just enjoy listening to writers reading from their own work, tune in to Charlie’s Angels; Twenty Four Years of Writing Together, every Sunday at noon.

Most writers benefit from being a member of a writing group, but groups in Otago are few and far between.  The Otago Writers Network hopes to change that by helping writers to create new groups that cater to their specific needs.

The network was created by Kath Beattie’s Writing Group, a collection of writers based in Dunedin, UNESCO City of Literature, who have been writing together since 1993. On this series, writers read their own works tell you how they have benefited from being part of a writing group.

Sheila Shuttlebus Half Hour
May 29 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

1222811634-609-13Sheila Shuttlebus – it’s a funny name, but then, Sheila’s a funny woman.
Every Monday at 11am, Sheila brings you half an hour of amusing musings on the lighter side of everyday life. The writing’s biting and the verse gets worse – think Pam Ayers, but with a broad Lancashire accent. It’s all designed to give listeners a bright start to their day.
