Ruth, whose short story The Coffin Gate was commissioned by Radio 4, will point out the difference between writing for radio and writing to be published. She says: ‘When writing for radio you have to consider how your words will be spoken on air and your story length has to fill the time allocated for the broadcast.’ Ms Figgest has an MA in Creative Writing from Sussex University and her latest completed novel, Magnetism, is currently under consideration by a publisher. In July former West End actor Alan Baker will read entries in the Anderida annual Short Story and Poetry competition, which will then be judged by members. This takes place on Tuesday July 11 (7.30pm) at the West Rocks Hotel, and the closing date for entries is July 1.
