Seeking submissions of short poetry for daily radio show

Northern Community Radio (91.7 KAXE/Grand Rapids, 89.9/Brainerd, 90.5 KBXE/Bemidji, 103.9/Ely) is now airing a program called THE BEAT, which features a short poem every weekday by a Minnesota poet, published or not, well known or not. No deadline.

Aside from quality, there are really only two criteria for submission: 1) the poet must currently live in Minnesota or have some demonstrably strong connection to the state; and 2) the poem has to fit into the show’s three-minute format. Published and unpublished work will be considered. Hear archived poems at kaxe.org/Programs/The Beat. The program is made possible with support from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

THE BEAT runs on Northern Community Radio’s Morning Show, during NPR’s Morning Edition, between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m., and again around 11:00 a.m. Your poem will be broadcast on 150,000 watts of signal power, meaning much of northern Minnesota will be able to pick it up, from Thief River Falls to Ely to Hermantown to Pierz. Other stations in the Association of Minnesota Public/Educational Radio Stations (AMPERS) have the option to use THE BEAT’s poems—and they do.

The best way to submit work is in your own voice, in a quality recording (e.g., MP3), emailed tosdowning@kaxe.org

No music or special effects.

A short bio—the 25-or-fewer-words variety—should accompany your submission.

MISSION: Northern Community Radio builds community in northern Minnesota through radio programming, cultural events and interactive media.
