Writers Corner Guidelines

Guidelines for Submission

  • Write for the ear, rather than for the eye. Dialogue usually doesn’t work as well as straight commentary.
  • Think short! Unfortunately, attention spans tend to drop off after about three minutes of spoken word. Time yourself at home before submitting your prose or poetry.
  • Family stories, remembrances, personal adventures can all provide good writing material. No political views, please.
  • Please send a cassette or CD of your prose/poetry, plus a hard copy of the submission to the address below.  The recording does not have to be of broadcast quality.
