Star and Shadow Radio presents

Fortnightly on Thursdays, 8pm. Listen here: https://starandshadow.org.uk/online-players/radio/
A celebration of creative projects that never got finished or never made it out into the world. What’s the value to be found in unfinished and private writing, art, and music? What stops us from finishing things off? And what might happen if the pressure to complete projects disappeared?
I’ll be asking my guests to search their bottom drawers and the abandoned corners of their laptops to rediscover secret and incomplete schemes.
My guest this week is Rachael Shaw, who is a writer. Rachael very generously tells me about the blog she started after being diagnosed with breast cancer in her mid thirties.
She turned to writing as a form of therapy, and as a way of helping others who might be going through similar experiences.
Rachael now embraces every opportunity that she can in life. That includes an ongoing project to publish the creative writing of students who participate in her creative writing club.
Presented by Em Anderson. If you have an unfinished or unpublished project you’d like to talk about, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
