The Writer’s Corner on WLRH features prose and poetry submitted by talented TN Valley wordsmiths. Each weekday morning at 9:30, a different voice is heard in “The Writer’s Corner,” with a commentary or poem recorded by the author.

How to Submit Your Writing to the Sundial Writers Corner
Think out loud! 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.
Think Personal! Family stories, remembrances, personal adventures can all provide good writing material. No political views will be accepted.
Please email us your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Writings can also be submitted the old fashioned way. Our address is-
