Upcoming Events

  • The submission period is now over for our November 30, 2017 episode of Writers’ Showcase. Thank you all who sent us your work. Please join us for the recording on Thursday, November 30th at 7 p.m. Admission is free.

All Alaska writers are invited to submit fiction and nonfiction pieces for possible inclusion in one of our programs. Stories are read before a live studio audience by professional actors, and later broadcast throughout Alaska on statewide public TV and radio.

Because of your feedback, we’ve made the entire season “writer’s choice,” which means you are free to write on any theme. Stories should be between 5- and 15-minutes long when read aloud. Profanity will need to be edited for broadcast.
