In fall 2008 Billy Pham participated in a Writers in the Schools residency at Benson High School with poet Carlos Reyes. Last year Billy’s poem “Silenced Fantasies” was published in the WITS Anthology A Whole New Subject and chosen by TriMet for the Poetry in Motion program.  You can read Billy’s poem on buses and on MAX throughout Portland and you can hear him talk about his writing (and rapping) with Emily Harris, the host of OPB’s Think Out Loud on July 1 at 9 am.
