Company Overview, in the words of the host and producer:
At different weeks during this hour we will read poetry, fiction and non-fiction, we will learn about new books, cultural organizations, calls for submissions from magazines. We will hear radio plays and news about upcoming events. We will interview local and international guest both in the studio and over the phone. In addition, every week we will announce a writing prompt. This will be a said topic on which the listeners are invited to write something – a poem, an essay, a short story, an opinion and send it to me over email.
