The Writers' Show, hosted by Joan Hetzler

Joan Hetzler the host of The Writers' Show from Chattanooga was kind enough to send me an email attachment with several shows she had taped using my work and the work of Carol Crawford, writer and poet from Blue Ridge, GA. My husband Barry downloaded the attachment to iTunes and I was able to listen to all the programs on my computer. He made a CD of the shows and now I can share them with my friends and family. Such a nice gift from Joan and I really appreciate her taking the time to do this for me.

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.

Joan Hetzler is a native Chattanoogan and freelance writer whose work has been published in poetry chapbooks, magazine articles, newspaper feature stories, literary journals, and in dramatic form. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Chattanooga Writers Guild.
