Our Voices Project

We’re excited to announce a new project – Our Voices Project – in collaboration with

Kentucky.com, The Key Newsjournal, and RADIOLEX 93.9 FM.
We’re issuing a call to Fayette County residents directly impacted by issues related to race, housing, and gentrification who are interested in writing opinions or short narrative pieces informed by their lived experience. Up to five (5) writers will be chosen and featured by the Lexington Herald-Leader, Key Newsjournal, RadioLex, and CivicLex.
Selected writers will be compensated $250 for their writing and will receive one-on-one writing coaching from Herald-Leader editors, including translation & interpretive services, if necessary. Applications due by September 28 at bit.ly/OurVoicesLex
This project is funded by the Facebook Journalism Project & the Lenfest Institute.
