April is National Poetry Month. This month KBCS in partnership with Jack Straw Productions and the Institute for Poetic Medicine (IPM ) in Palo Alto, CA will air “Stories of Arrival: Youth Voices”.

This project highlights the voices of Foster High School students. The students learn to tell their stories with direction from Merna Ann Hecht, the Project Poet and Teaching Artist and Carrie Stradley, a Foster High School ELL Teacher and Project Co-Director.

The students record their poems at Jack Straw Productions for KBCS to air during the month of April. The Stories of Arrival: Youth Voices poems can be heard weekdays around 6:50 PM at the end of Hard Knock Radio.
