SLCC prof records winning poem for Irish radio station

Salt Lake Community College Associate Professor of English Lisa Bickmore recently took time to record her prize-winning poem "Eidolon" for a radio station in Ireland. Bickmore's 700-word poem last month beat almost 3,000 poems by nearly 2,000 poets to win the Ballymaloe International Poetry Contest and more than $10,000 in prize money, one of the richest purses in the world for an unpublished poem. She sat down with SLCC Media Operations Director William Bradford to do an audio recording to be sent to the station RTE Radio 1. Below are a few images from that recording session.
