Listen to KUWS “Writers Read” for One River Many Stories recorded on April 27 at University of Wisconsin-Superior. Poet Sheila Packa started the evening: “Whatever we write about gets stronger, so I’m glad we’re writing about the river.” Powerful essays on whitewater kayaking during the 2012 flood, the work of a fisheries biologist, duck hunting in the estuary, the healing grace of the river, and several extraordinary poems. Featured writers, pictured above with emcee Jennifer Moore of UMD’s Journalism program: Ashley Sullivan, Mark Munger, Sheila Packa, Deanne Erickson, Stephen Schram, David Cowardin, Cliff Langley, Jan Chronister. Wisconsin Public Radio will archives all submissions; access them at the link above.
“One River, Many Stories” is a journalism, media and storytelling project and resource hub for journalists, educators, and citizens to foster deeper conversations about our community. This University of Minnesota Duluth Journalism program project is funded in part by the Knight Foundation Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
