Ants, Grief and a P&O Cruise – Stories on Arts Thursday

Three local Sydney writers have specially recorded works for this storytelling episode of Arts Thursday 21st July with Maren on Eastside Radio.

We’ll be hearing a short story titled ‘Wine and Cheese Appreciation’ by journalist and writer Amelia Marshall, on a sharehouse and an ant farm.


Next, we’ll hear three poems by queer Arab Australian poet and writer Omar Sakr, ‘After’ written after his grandmother passed away, ‘Monthly Binge’ on Ramadan, and ‘Not So Wild’, which placed runner up in the Judith Wright poetry prize.


And we finish off the show with a tale of a P&O Cruise, towel animals, colonialism and Christmas songs by stand-up comedian and writer Dominica Duckworth.


So looking forward to you joining me to hear these specially recorded original works on our storytelling special of Arts Thursday  on Eastside Radio.

10.30am Р12pm, Thursday 21st July 2016, on 89.7FM or streaming at http://eastsidefm.org/
