The Writer's Almanac, hosted by Garrison Keillor, can be heard each day on public radio stations throughout the country. Each day's program is exactly five minutes long.
Most stations schedule TWA within their live local programming, e.g., as a segue between segments or as a distinct capsule within a program. And if listeners demand more than one broadcast a day, go ahead! You can air The Writer's Almanac an unlimited number of times within its 24-hour release period…at no cost!
The Writer's Almanac educates, entertains and inspires listeners with brief facts and poetry related to each day's date. It celebrates the birthdays and works of poets, writers, composers, philosophers and historical figures. The show incorporates tidbits of history trivia, for example, "On this day in 1978, the Commerce Department, which oversees the National Weather Service, announced that hurricanes would no longer be named exclusively for women." Host Garrison Keillor closes each show by reading a wildly diverse selection of poetry, from Keats and Shelley to Mother Goose.
The Web site offers audio clips, printed versions of each segment and links to related material.
The Writer's Almanac has 2.5 million listeners each week on over 350 stations across the country.
