The show airs every Thursday at 7:50 am on Rob Murray’s morning show. Dave Whitfield, the editor of  Rocky Mountain Outlook, publishes the featured pieces once a month. I invite you all to join us for some laughter in celebration of the written word.  You will have FUN and a great experience.

Submissions are to be made to writerscrampcanmore@live.com. Please include contact info.

“At 7 years of age in the mid ’60’s; when it was holiday time I remember the ride in the blue Valiant across the prairies, writing poetry, stuffed up against the window behind Dad in the back seat with 4 siblings. If this opportunity was available to me I would have been in heaven”.  –  Karen Barker

Thank you for your participation in making this opportunity a success for the students of the Bow Valley.
Keeping it light,

Karen and Rob
