The Writers Show offers a lively half hour once a month. It entertains listeners through interviews, discussions, readings, drama, stories, and poetry by award winning guests such as poet, Dr. Richard Jackson, and novelist, Karen McElmurray. In addition, the show offers support to local and regional writers by providing a public outlet for their work, information about writing events in the area, and news of trends and happenings around the region. Local theatre groups have provided radio drama, and actors and actresses do dramatic readings.
Frequently, requests for submissions are sent out for listeners to submit their work on a specific theme to be read on air.The show can be heard on the first Sunday of each month at 1:00 p.m. on WAWL FM 91.5.
