A Living Word

The roots of this longstanding two-minute daily meditation programme on RTE Radio 1, reach back to the traditions of Morning Prayer and Compline. Today's transmissions range from the religious to the reflective along the whole spectrum of human spirituality. Broadcast as part of Radio 1’s Risin’ Time, Late Date and The Weekend on One.

Monday - Friday, 6.40am on RTÉ Radio 1
See the website here The podcasts seem to be very out of date though.

Contributions are very welcome. One week's output comprises five scripts in total, each of which should average 250 words at most. The five individual pieces may be a freestanding choice of topics or a thematised suite with a unitary concern. Personal and narrative material works well. The language should seek to be agile and vernacular, the tone companionable and even intimate.

Don't forget that the microphone (the Ancient Greek for 'a small voice') is the very opposite of the megaphone! Listen live or on the Website to editions of the programme as a good general guide.

Submissions for consideration should be sent to:
A Living Word, Arts and Features, Radio Centre, RTÉ, Donnybrook, Dublin 4
