ACHF Arts Access
Everyday Minnesotans are inspired to create their own poetry for the show's Haiku Hotline segment. I will track listener contributions to each episode, with the goal of increasing listener submissions week-to-week. 2: Minnesota artists, musicians, politicians, and activists will examine the effect of poetry on their own lives and work. I will interview ten local artists, one-on-one, about the influence of poetry on their lives, and share an edited version of the conversation each week on the podcast.
Stermer will produce Interesting People Reading Poetry, a podcast that will feature regional artists and local celebrities reading and discussing their favorite poems. A live broadcast is planned for the final episode in the Twin Cities.
