KBOO's Talking Earth poetry program is an important part of the Portland Poetry universe.
The show airs Monday nights from 10-11 PM , co -hosted by Walt Curtis and Barbara LaMorticella.
We have an hour of pure poetry every week, and try to be representative not of a particular clique or scene but of a broad range of writing/readings in Portland. We are always open to new voices, and invite people to send us work to consider for radio reading.   The Talking Earth – Spoken arts with Barbara LaMorticella author of Rain on Waterless Mountain, a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and Walt Curtis iconoclastic poet and painter Walt Curtis is the author of numerous books, including Mala Noche. Walt is secretary of the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission.  LaMorticella has been active in Portland¹s literary world (especially poetry) since the mid-1970s. She goes on-site to record various literary events, creating a unique archive. In addition to radio, she edits poetry for online literary magazine Mr. Cogito and the Portland Alliance newspaper, and has co-edited three anthologies of Portland poets. She has produced literary events for Northwest Writers, Portland Poetry Festival, The Temple and Pacific Northwest College of Art.
