KSPC’s Poetry Program provides a space for people to come into the station and read their original poems live on the air! If you are a poet, or even if you are a person with things to say in a poetry way, then this is a great opportunity for you!

Poem of the week:
Melanie Simms
Melanie Simms currently writes poetry out of Pennsylvania, but is a proud former resident, and poet of California. She is an award-winning poet with over 175 publications of poetry in numerous magazines, newspapers and literary journals. Even more, Melanie served with distinction as a former Poet Laureate of Perry County, and is listed in Marquis Who’s Who of the World and Cambridge Who’s Who of Women in Publication. To read more of Melanie’s poetry, check out her book of poetry titled, “Waking the Muse.”

Rules and such:

Anyone is eligible to submit their poems! However, if you have read your poem on-air within the past 30 days, please let someone else have a shot at the limelight.

Poems must be self-written. They can be in any style, but they must be under five minutes long and be completely FCC clean meaning no cuss words, and no inappropriate imagery. Think G to PG-rated.

Multiple poems can be read in one performance if they comply with these regulations, i.e. total performance time is under 5 minutes and all of the poems are FCC clean.

Interested? Send an electronic copy of your poem or poems, preferably as an attachment, to poetry [at] kspc.org along with your name, number, and email address. Or, send a physical copy of your poems to KSPC’s mailing address:

340 N. College Ave.
Claremont, CA 91711
Attn: Poetry

Want to submit a poem, but don’t want to read it live on the air? That’s cool too! There are other things that can be done. Just ask!

Finally, if you are selected, then someone from KSPC will contact you and fill you in on everything else that you need to know.

If you have any other questions, comments, or tidbits then contact poetry [at] kspc.org.

Happy writing!
