Sundial Writers Corner

The Sundial Writers Corner is one of WLRH's longest running programs and greatest traditions. For more than 20 years, Sundial has featured prose and poetry submitted by talented Tennessee Valley wordsmiths. Enjoy commentaries, short stories, poems and everything in between, told in the voice of the author. Many of our writers have received awards at the state and national level, while others are exhibiting their creative abilities for the first time. The Sundial Writers Corner airs Mondays at 9am, right after Morning Edition. There will also be special Sundial segments during The Public Radio Hour Thursday nights at 7pm!
