RA Martens on BBC Radio 4's Scottish Shorts

Category: News

Several writers from our New Writers Awards programme will be featured on BBC Radio 4's Scottish Shorts, a showcase of new writing from Scotland.

This week's episode featured RA Martens' story 'Sobek Refutes the Plover Theory'.

'Sobek Refutes the Plover Theory' is a surreal and funny short story about Oliver Al Sobek, whose exceptional requirements in the field of dentistry - he has the vast jaws of a crocodile - make visits to the dentist hard to come by. His new dentist harbours romantic dreams of tending his incisors with the gentle ministrations of a Plover.

The story was broadcast on Sunday 17 February and is still available online
