We are happy to announce that KUNM 89.9 FM is a huge partner in the festival.

Also, in an effort to make KUNM a hub of poetry on the global scene, Jonathan Longcore will be webstreaming much of the festival live over the ether!!! And  he’ll also be archiving performances on the web. We also have features on Women’s Focus with Carol Boss on August 30th, Spoken Word Hour hosted by Jered Ebenreck on August 31st and Youth Radio in September.

Carol Boss will talk with 5 women of STIR. Poets Lisa Gill, Valerie Martinez, Jasmine Senna-Cuffee, Maureen Seaton, and she’ll also hear from Ikuko Kanda on violin and Book Lung Artist Becky Holtzman.

Then during spoken word hour, expect to hear:

•An interview with Joy Harjo by Ramona King

•Church of Beethoven music and Arthur Sze (poetry)

•ABQ Slams Live Highlights from the $100 Slam

•Print Poetry Options with Blue Mesa Review and Sin Fronteras

•Floetry with Hakim Bellamy and more

More details forthcoming. For now, we send our gratitude to everyone who is making this tremendous radio support possible.
