You are a superstar – come tape your poem!
We are very fortunate that KLRU (our local PBS station) has been a supporter of Vision+Voice since we started in 2013. They generously offer up their talent, time, and facilities to tape the winning and honorable mention poets reading their poems. The videos will be premiered at the Vision+Voice Award Reception on April 13th, and are then posted online at KLRU and here on the Vision+Voice website. This year, our judges have selected 50 winning and honorable mention poems, and we want to tape ALL of them.
The taping is scheduled for March 26 & 27, from 11am–1pm & 2pm–6pm each day.
Each poem takes between 5 -15 minutes to tape, and I will do my best to arrange the schedule to meet your request.
Poets: you do not need to memorize your poems! I will have the poems printed for you.
This is a great way to showcase the excellent work of this year’s poets, and I hope you will all take advantage of this generous offer from KLRU.
Here are the 2017 videos
so you can see how cool this is!
The time-slots are filling up quickly, please contact me to schedule your taping: email@example.com.
See you soon!

This year I had the honor of being among some of the most talented young creative writers in Austin. Young people of all ages crowded a banquet room brimming with beautiful floral bouquets, dressed tables, and a mini red carpet just for them. Vision + Voice has had an impressive 4 year run and as the years go by the number of student poetry writers increases and amazes. I had a chat with several of these young writers and couldn’t help but fawn over the mix of adorable and well thought out interview answers, many of which impressed me.
