In the Loop - activist submissions
Minnesota Public Radio's In The Loop is looking for artistic statements (poetry, songs, or other spoken word performances) about issues that stoke the activist impulse in your own lives.
Maybe you need better signs on your street? Longer hours at the library? Shorter checkout lines at the grocery store? Consider this your chance to make a stand, even if you've never made one before. The issue can be as big as your city or as small as your neighbor next door -- and the more specific, the better.
The ideal entry will be between one and two minutes, and explain not just what the issue is, but why you care. Creativity is a must; humor is welcome, though not required.
We'll post a number of the best entries on our web site, and choose some of our favorites to perform on the next In The Loop, April 19.
