BBC Storytellers: Seamus Heaney Centre special episodes
We are delighted to collaborate once again with BBC Radio Ulster with a series of six special episodes of their Short Works programme, featuring new writing by students from the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen's.
Twelve new stories by students at the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen's have been selected for production as part of the ongoing BBC Storytellers collaboration. The works have been produced in BBC studios, and the first episode goes out on Sat 1 Apr at 3.30pm on BBC Radio Ulster, and every week thereafter until Sat 1 May 2023.
This is a valuable opportunity for students to have their work shared worldwide, and for listeners to hear fresh new voices. The collaboration recognises the important role the Seamus Heaney Centre plays, year on year, supporting new writers to tell their stories in new ways.
Tune in over the coming weeks to hear...
