Literally Spoken

The concept that pulsates through LITERALLY SPOKEN is that good short fiction is definitely based on the absurdities of reality.  So each show ONE THEME IS ON THE MENU and what your work represents about that menu item is WHAT IS SERVED UP.

So here are the show themes for upcoming shows.  Check the blog often for updates. 

October 4 - Footsteps in The Dark - Romantic Mystery


October 18 - Blues For Mama - Heartbroken Women


November 1 - The First Lady - Scandalous Preacher's wives

Literally Spoken takes per show themes and invites authors of short fiction and fiction writers with appropriate excerpts or works in progress - to contribute pieces. 

Pieces submitted should be accompanied by a brief letter stating exclusive and definitive ownership of the piece by the person submitting and presenting.   Works should not contain explicit language (random cursing with no specific purpose or erotically vulgar).

Work should be emailed to:  In the subject line, list:  TITLE/SHOW THEME i.e.   When The Praises Go Up/The First Lady.

Work will be chosen for creativity, artistic flair, ability to grab attention and other criteria. Show producers will make first round choices, with final selection left to the show host.

Authors chosen for on air presentation will have a minimum of three and a maximum of seven minutes to read their work on air. 

Interview sessions and possible listener interaction will then follow.  are also part of the show concept.   For additional information, email:
