A radio program produced by KSLU-FM, 90.9, Southeastern Louisiana University’s public radio station, received an Award of Excellence in Sound Design in the 18th Annual Communicator Awards.
“New Orleans in Words” features writings from members and guests of the Southeastern Louisiana Writing Project that were set to the ambience and sounds of the Crescent City. The show was the fifth collaborative project between SLWP and KSLU, station General Manager Todd Delaney said.
All of the pieces were written by area writing teachers participating in SLWP’s annual New Orleans Writing Marathon, a three-day event where writers fan out across New Orleans to capture their experiences, SLWP Project Director Richard Louth, a professor of English, said. The writings can be found in two recent publications: “The Writing Marathon: In Good Company Revealed” and “New Orleans in Words” in the spring 2011 issue of “Louisiana Literature.”
