KALW Radio Poets

About Radio Poets

For National Poetry Month, KALW and America SCORES Bay Area have teamed up to bring you the voices of young poets from San Francisco’s public schools.

America SCORES uses soccer and poetry to help young “poet-athletes” discover the benefits of working together as a team, the joy of physical activity, and the fun in reading and writing.

Every Monday through Friday at 7:49am, you can hear these young people read their poems on KALW or use the links below to hear past recordings. 

The Radio Poets series was edited and produced by Kevin Vance, and features original work created by SFUSD elementary students.
