Word on the Hills

Sundays at 1:00 pm
Northumberland 89.7 FM

Word on the Hills is a radio series, proposed, developed and now produced by two members of the Spirit of the Hills Writers’ Group. Co-hosts, Felicity Sidnell Reid and Gwynn Scheltema interview local authors, including those who write poetry, fiction and memoir as well as some who, in addition, edit and publish. Interviewees are asked to read and share their work.

Listeners may get a glimpse into the writers’ lives and discover what prompts these authors to write and even why they choose to express their ideas in a particular genre. Many of those already interviewed are members of Spirit of the Hills but the programme seeks writers in all genres who live in the Northumberland region to participate in this series.

The series is broadcast on Northumberland 89.7 FM at 1:00 pm on Sundays or may be heard live-streamed at that time from the station’s website. All programmes are archived and accessible on the Word on the Hills website at www.wordonthehills.com and contact may be established there with the co-hosts.
