Listen to Words And Women on General Norwich!

The lovely Madeleine Hickish, producer of General Norwich, spent some time recently interviewing W&W organisers Lynne Bryan and Belona Greenwood about Words And Women. She has made a wonderful podcast of the interview which reveals everything about our work  and more. The more includes a reading by Deborah Arnander who features in our anthology Words And Women One. Deborah reads an extract from her anthology story Lion Bastard. Also the podcast ends with music by the stylish and eccentric duo Let’s Eat Grandma playing Sax In The City, a song which they unleashed on our audience at our IWD event on the 8th March.

You can listen to the interview at soundcloud.com/general-norwich or by subscribing to iTunes.

The General Norwich Podcast is a not-for-profit project funded by an Ultd. Social Enterprise grant. The aim of the 12-part series is to celebrate those individuals and organisations who contribute creatively and innovatively to our community. The podcast has covered loads of brilliant people, places and goings-on in the city of Norwich, Norfolk, England, in addition to Words And Women, such as Thalia Theatre Company, Print to the People, The Big Issue, and FoodCycle Norwich. Madeleine would love to hear from you if you, or someone you know, is doing something exciting in the community, and would like to be interviewed too! You can email her at general.norwich@yahoo.co.uk

Madeleine Hickish is a 2nd year English Literature undergraduate at the UEA. She’s travelled from St. Petersburg to Mongolia on the Trans-Siberian railway, and spent 6 months chalet-hosting in the French alps, but has only just set out on the career-finding adventure of being a student. Aside from eating toast, drinking tea and avoiding coursework, Madeleine produces and hosts her own show on UEA’s student radio station, livewire1350.com. ‘Madeleine’s Tea Party’ features an eclectic mix of pre-1950’s music, cryptic crossword challenges and vintage social guidance advice, and airs on Sunday evenings at 7.30pm. She can be found on Twitter @maddiehickish, and found in real life wandering the Norwich lanes/at the gym/washing up at Franks Bar.
