On June 11, 18 and 25, a different queen/king will take over the MoPOP instagram and showcase a MoPOP-inspired pop culture look.

OUR HEARTS LIVE HERE Initiative - 2020 Graduation

At KCTS 9, we believe that our COMMUNITY is our greatest strength in times of adversity.  The novel coronavirus has significantly changed the ways we interact with our family, friends and neighbors. In an effort to spread some joy during the difficult moment we’re all living in, we’re launching the OUR HEARTS LIVE HERE initiative.

Graduation season is upon us, and we want to celebrate and honor all of the grads from pre-school to law-school and everything in between, who are missing out on this year’s ceremonies.

Submit a photo of your graduate (or yourself!) below for us to feature on-air on KCTS 9 and on our social media channels. You can also use #OurHeartsLiveHere to submit photos and share your grads with your neighbors.

Congrats to the class of 2020!

Want to see photos from our decorating or Mr. Rogers sweater challenges? Click here.

Finally, please share this with your family, friends and neighbors! The more people who participate the more we show we’re all in this together.

Here’s how to participate:

1) To submit your photo(s), fill out this form and include your name, e-mail and photo of your graduate(s). Use the hashtag #OurHeartsLiveHere to share your work with the community.

2) Follow all social distancing guidelines and stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who doesn’t live in your residence.

Our favorite submissions will be featured in spots aired on KCTS 9.

FREE! Writing Our Way Through Quarantine

Remember back when you wished you could just stay home all day and never go to work? Well, congrats! You just got your dream scenario. But, just because you’re homebound doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. So, for those of you who have to write stuff for a living — and by that we mean web content, video scripts, newsletters, marketing emails, social media, and other marketing communication — why not use all that free time you now have to learn how to make that writing better? As always, you’ll learn at the hand of a very experienced pro. But not as always, this time the learning’s free.

Register here.

In these three one-hour weekly online sessions, the consummate copy pro and creative director, Dennis O’Reilly, will help you become a better writer of all kinds of business and marketing communication. If you decide to take all three (you’re welcome to just sit in on one or two) you’ll do a short assignment each week, and then collaborate with your peers to critique them. Here’s what else we’ll be covering:

Week 1: Writing using a brief or strategy statement as your writing prompt Week 2: Stream-of-consciousness writing; how to get to the good stuff Week 3: How to edit and refine your own writing and another author’s Qualities of good writing: Clarity, Simplicity, Brevity, Humanity How to keep it creative when you’re working in solitary confinement
