Listen to Radio Sheffield at 7pm on Friday 11th June!

‘Chantwriters’, the anti-racist writing group run in partnership with Football Unites, is still going and inviting new members. It recently recorded a session to be broadcast later this summer by Sheffield Live! internet radio station. Before that you can hear Ralph Hancock, the group’s leader, talking about Chantwriters on Ony Bright’s show on BBC Radio Sheffield at about 9pm on Friday 11th June. Also, look out for Chantwriters at Sharrow Festival on 10th July. As a taster, here’s one of Ralph’s most recent poems, which he’s called ‘Phoem’ – an answerphone message in verse! Contact Football Unites if you’re interested in Chantwriters.
