New England Public Radio airs commentaries from local writers every Friday morning during Morning Edition Extra. We look for writers in the region whose views will be of continuing interest and value to WFCR and WNNZ’s listeners – from the Berkshires to Worcester, Hartford to Brattleboro, and all points between.

Experts in a particular field who have an informed perspective on events in the news – whether local, national or international, are wanted. We also seek people with knowledge of local civics, culture, lore, and history, with an eye on little-known but fascinating elements of the regional experience. And we seek non-experts who by virtue of their thoughtfulness broaden or deepen our understanding of the world we live in.
