I have a fifteen minute play called In Bed with John Keats going out at 9pm this Friday on RaW - Radio Warwick, our very own student radio station located in the heart of the university. (It's a sort of glorified filing cabinet, actually, in University House, but crammed full of very enthusiastic and skilled people.)
The play is part of a season of short student-written radio plays this term. At the end of the season, there may be a competition to see whose play was best, in the panel's opinion.
I wrote In Bed with John Keats, originally 45 mins long, for a BBC Radio 4 slot. But then I couldn't decided if it was finished or not, and while trying to decide, forgot all about it.
Then one of the very nice radio guys at Warwick - called Scott, in fact - asked me for some short radio drama and I thought, I'll chop up that old play of mine and give that to him.
So I did. And it's on, for one time only, I imagine, at 9pm this Friday 16th January.
Find it online at radio.warwick.ac.uk/listen at 9pm, Friday.

Just to let you know I'll be talking about my new arts magazine Horizon Review on "Start the Week" this Monday morning, 20th October - 9am, if you're ever up that early on a Monday! (My train into London is at 06.04, so I'll certainly be awake by then. Or if not, I'll be in serious trouble, ahem.)
For those who don't know, "Start the Week" is a high-profile arts programme on BBC Radio 4.
The other guests with me this Monday are Rupert Goold, theatre director - who's currently directing Pete Postlethwaite in King Lear, along with Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Audience at the Gielgud Theatre, Pinter at the Duke of York AND Oliver! at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane - also Duncan Wu, writer and biographer (his most recent work is a biography of William Hazlitt) and Jackie Wullschlager, chief art critic for the Financial Times, who's just written a comprehensive tome on the Russian emigré artist Chagall.
If you miss it on Monday, the programme should be available for about a week using the Listen Again facility on the BBC Radio 4 website.
I'll be visiting the Poetry Library at the South Bank afterwards, having lunch with poet, critic and Warwick-based creative writing tutor George Ttoouli at the Poetry Society, and generally swanning about London in search of lattés and good poetry.
Ah, the life of a literary editor ... !
