The Uplift on KZYX

Hi y’all! I’m curating a new poetry spot on KZYX for the duration of the shelter in place order. Send us your work!

Open Call for Submissions for The Uplift

What is it like for our community to live through the COVID-19 pandemic? Starting this week we’re dedicating regular air time for local-area poets, writers, songwriters, musicians, & spoken word artists to feature their reflections on the pandemic, as shelter in place stretches on for at least several more weeks. How is this collective experience affecting individuals, and how do we understand what is happening to us?

Submit wav or mp3 recordings of poems, short stories, micro-fictions, songs, & short essays to theuplift.kzyx@gmail.com. Selections will be broadcast on KZYX on Friday mornings at 9am, throughout the shelter in place order.
