Leigh Chambers’ guest is Literary Agent, Rachel Calder. Rachel runs the prestigious Sayle Literary Agency based in Cambridge which counts Annie Proulx and Billy Bragg among its varied list of authors. She’ll be talking about what she looks for in a manuscript and how she knows when she’s found it, as well as reflecting on the effects of e-books and self-publishing. There are also interviews with local historian and writer, Louise Foxcroft, talking about her book The Irish Pasha, an exploration of the life of Pum Gayer Anderson, a true early twentieth century eccentric. And we’ll also hear from poet John Lyons and publisher Ian Dieffenthaler about the impact and influence of the Creole language on poetry.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are listening to Cambridge 105 Radio than ever but in a competitive media landscape it’s sometimes difficult to make a noise. And advertising revenues are falling across the sector.
Our brief is to give a voice to those sometimes excluded from traditional media. And the presenters you hear on air are all volunteers themselves, who give up their time for free. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who listens to our shows, our podcasts, whose businesses we feature, helps to pay for it, our future would be much more secure.
Please help to support community radio and make our future more secure. You can support Cambridge 105 Radio by giving monthly or by making a one-off contribution through Local Giving.
