If any group would like to publish their event in the Denholme column of the T&A’s Yorkshire Observer, then please contact Tina Watkin, their Local Reporter on 01274 834 273 or e-mail bradfordwriterscircle@hotmail.com Copy must be sent to her 11 days before the event. Tina is also on the committee for Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB 96.7 fm to 106.6 fm) and has a two hour programme on Thursday called the Afternoon Stretch with Alan Keeling from 2-4 pm. She is always looking for guests to talk about interesting things they have done or are planning to do or about difficulties faced in general regarding community issues. Anyone wishing for an interview on air can contact Tina on tina.watkin@bcbradio.co.uk


Tina also has a slot for writers only, which runs monthly on a Tuesday evening from 6.30 pm to 7.00 pm. It is called the Scribe Slot and is not for well published folk, but a step on the ladder to fame with the backing of the Bradford Writers Circle name behind it. If you are an aspiring writer who may wish to be interviewed, then log on to their website for details at bradfordwriterscircle.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk
