On A Stairway in Luang Prabang on the BBC

On Tuesday, they'll be reading my poem "On A Stairway in Luang Prabang" on BBC Radio:

They'll have the recording posted up for 7 days. They didn't have enough space to mention that Mrs. Chomsy Kouanchao also played a big hand in preparing the Lao translation with Ai Kongkeo Saycocie. It is being read by Khanthieng Muongphene, a lecturer in engineering from Laos. We're hoping it gets mentioned in the actual reading and we'll be making a note of that on other websites and posts.

An interactive map featuring the poems of all of the writers who were cultural olympians for this program has also been posted at the Guardian. Thanks, everyone!
