On NPR's All Things Considered TONIGHT!

8/20/2012

I'm on NPR's All Things Considered tonight! I'm this month's News Poet which means I will be writing a poem about today's news... on deadline. I'm the last segment in the show (since I'm writing about all of the day's news) so stay tuned through the whole thing to listen. Also, I'm liveblogging my day via my Twitter handle @tessathon. For Twitter-phobes, you can just click on that link to see what I'm saying or go on over to my contact page where I have a live Twitter feed running. 

UPDATE: The poem is live: http://www.npr.org/2012/08/20/159349948/newspoet-tess-taylor-writes-the-day-in-verse
