Sometimes a child’s perspective is just what’s needed during difficult times. That’s why Cork’s LifeFM is preparing to broadcast the poems and short stories of Cork school children to the whole world this winter.

This will be the third year running that radio showcase series Word Power takes to the airwaves to celebrate the imaginations of children across the city and county.

Staff at LifeFM say they were inundated with entries for this year’s series following a call out to libraries and schools. They then had the near impossible job of picking out their favourites which will then be read on air. The series will play on LifeFM 93.1 every weekday from this Monday until 20 November at 8.40am, 12.30pm and 4.20pm.

The project is supported by the Creative Ireland Programme, an all-of-Government five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy.

LifeFM has a strong history in producing compelling content with past projects including radio drama ‘Across the Ocean in 18 Days: A True Adventure’, and poetry project ‘The Price of Liberty’, both of which were aired on the station in recent years.

The series will air locally on LifeFM 93.1 and worldwide on
