Literary Landscape has been running since 1997. It is currently hosted by Kate Hunt, Pearl Pirie and Liam Burke.

The half-hour show runs on Thursdays at 6:30 PM and can be heard at 93.1 in Ottawa or online at www.ckcufm.com. We take turns hosting and each of the hosts has a different bent to their show. For example, Kate generally (but not always) focuses on the performance of literature (with a side helping of SF/F and genre fiction) while Pearl's guests vary from haiku poets to sound poets with a feature of 2 books she's reading this week. The content - and the hosting - varies a lot from week to week. Tune in and see what you get!
