Literature Live on Resonance

NEW: London author Tony White presents an hour of readings and chat with some of the best novelists and short story writers around. Literature Live on Resonance is an occasional programme focusing on live literature, with the emphasis on authors reading from their own prose fiction. White invites authors to join him in the Resonance Studio in London to recreate some of the magic of the live literature scene live on the air, as they read short extracts from their fiction and discuss live literature, live.

Tony White is the author of novels including Foxy-T and The Fountain in the Forest (Faber), and a veteran of the live literature scene. In tonight’s episode for Clearspot on Resonance 104.4fm, he’s joined live in the studio by the authors Mona Dash and Courttia Newland.

Resonance broadcasts on 104.4 FM to central London, DAB to Greater London, nationally on Radioplayer and live streamed to the rest of the world. More info at
