Statewide Poetry Winners

Fairbanks Arts

KUAC's Lori Neufeld with help from member statons KOTZ, Kotzebue; KDLG, Soldotna and KSTK, Wrangell recorded all the first place winners in Fairbanks Arts Association's 24th Annual Statewide Poetry Contest. Here is Avani, Darcy, Avlynne and Tiffany reading their first place submissions and reflecting on the writing process.

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
