Border Voices Virtual Fairs

The Border Voices “virtual fair” tradition was started in 2010 when, for the first time in the history of the Border Voices Poetry Project the poetry fair went “high-tech”and was held on-air at the ITV studios. Everyone loved it! San Diego students join famous poets to explore Life, the Universe & EVERYTHING.
