airing poetry…

January 30, 2012

NPR logoNational Public Radio has announced a flavorful addition to All Things Considered: poetry! Once a month, the program will invite “a poet to spend time in the newsroom — and at the end, to compose a poem reflecting on the day’s news.”

The first featured poet is Tracy K. Smith. You can read and listen to Tracy Smith’s poem, New Road Station, and see the news article that inspired her on the NPR website.
