Series produced by KUFM - Montana Public Radio

Series image

A weekly literary program that features writers from the American West and beyond. The Write Question is hosted and produced by former Montana Book Festival Director Lauren Korn and co-produced first by Peter Hoag and currently by Chris Moyles and Jake Birch. TWQ is distributed through PRX to public and community radio stations, as well as to listeners around the world.

Guests on The Write Question include authors writing from or about the western United States—or about subjects outside the American West that are applicable to the region. The series also features bestselling and emerging writers, visiting writers, illustrators, photographers, publishers, and other artists.
