1) Stress Test with hosts Joe Dunthorne, Martha Sprackland and John Osborne is like an anxiety dream made real, we invite writers to produce new work under timed conditions and make them read it aloud on the radio. Then we talk about what went wrong.
2) Rough Trade Books Club is hosted by editor and Rough Trade Books author and Mathew Clayton. Each month guests from the literary world—authors, agents, booksellers and editors will bring Mathew their current book recommendations to chew over. Regular features will include Will Burns’ Poetry Corner, Nina Hervé shining a light on a Rough Trade Edition and some tenuous musical links.
3) Words & Music
Writer and editor Anna Wood provides a close reading of a recently published poem or short story, and plays music old and new prompted by the story. With occasional guests and occasional exclusives.
