What is Community Voices?
Community Voices is
all about getting local voices on the air. We help local people record
essays, poems and commentaries. We work with public school teachers who
want to bring radio into their classrooms. We collect oral histories. In
the spring of 2011 we launched a training program to teach listeners
how to produce radio stories.
WYSO is now accepting applications for the 2013 Community Voices Training Course. Click here to download the application form.

interviews, write for radio, and ultimately produce a feature story.
