Poetry Moment

by

Presented by Spokane Public Radio, Poetry Moment is a program that showcases myriad poems as read by poets and poetry lovers from across the Inland Northwest — and occasionally beyond.Poetry Moment airs one poem on KPBX each weekday at 9am; a single reader curates the entire week’s worth of poetry. Sometimes the poems are the reader’s own, and sometimes they’re written by poets whose work they admire and want to share with listeners.Since its start in 2018, Poetry Moment has featured readers ranging from the Washington State Poet Laureate and popular local slam poets to listeners who simply want to give voice to a few of their favorite pieces.Are you interested in reading for Poetry Moment too?
