The Writing Game

Once again I was asked to submit a poem* to be read on "The Writing Game", a community radio program on Bishop FM in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, UK, on November 6, 2011. The following is an excerpt from the radio blog page introducing the upcoming program. A podcast of the program will be available shortly after the airing.

The November Writing Game will visit Escomb Church in the company of Writing Game regular, historian Glynn Wales. We invited Wear Valley Writer Alison Carr, Writing Gamer Avril  Joy, and one of our American listeners, Ann Grenier to write poems about this wonderful and inspiring place. Some of the poems which you see here below will be read on the November programme. Writing Games Gillian Wales and Avril Joy helped to edit and produce this programme.

12:00 Noon
Sunday 6th November

I send heartfelt thanks to Wendy Robertson and Avril Joy for the opportunity to submit my poems to "The Writing Game". It is a wonderful program, beautifully produced, imaginative, inspiring and a delightful listening experience.


  1. Thank you Ann for your generous comments about the Writing Game. We really admire your work and value your contributions and we love that we have listeners across the Pond.

    If anyone is interested there are podcasts of previous programmes on the site- some of which include interviews with prize winning writers like David Almond and Pat Barker - and more of Ann's poetry - well worth a listen.
