MSMS Students Featured on MPB's Rural Voices Radio

Last semester 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 production from last semesters recording is complete and this month the talented writers of MSMS will be featured. All MSMS students who submitted their writing received thoughtful, specific response in preparation for this unique publishing opportunity. This week's program includes pieces by Kristin Marie Howett, of Perkinston, and Laurel Lancaster, of Southaven.

Kristin's story can be heard Wednesday, August 5th at 3:28 p.m.

Laurel's story can be heard Friday, August 7th 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. The app is called MPB.

As always we encourage you to visit, find us on Facebook, and like us on Twitter (@the_msms). We will keep you informed as more of our writers are featured on Rural Voices Radio.
