As mentioned in an earlier Brainstorm post, Mrs. Richardson's Creative Writing classes shared their unique stories and voices with the Rural Voices Radio program on Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB). For those who are not familiar with this program, it is a partnership between the Mississippi Writing/Thinking Institute and MPB and is broadcast each weekday at 3:28 p.m. Listeners can tune into any of the eight MPB radio stations to hear stories of home, place, and Mississippi  by students and teachers across the state.

We are happy to say the scheduling issues we had last week have been fixed and starting Thursday, August 13th, MSMS will be one of the featured schools.  This week's program includes pieces by Kristin Marie Howett and Laurel Lancaster.

Kristin's story can be heard Thursday, August 13th at 3:28 p.m.

Laurel's story can be heard Friday, August 14th at 3:28 p.m.

Next week's program will include pieces by Joy Carino, Connor Holtman, and Carly Sneed.

Joy's story can be heard Monday, August 17th at 3:28 p.m.

Connor's story can be heard Wednesday, August 19th at 3:28 p.m.

Carly's story can be heard Friday, August 21st at 3:28 p.m.

You can find a listing of MPB stations by clicking here. MPB also has a free app where you can listen to their programming anywhere in the world.
