Carte Blanche website call for submissions, deadline March 15

From the Montreal-based Carte Blanche website via the good folks at AIR – interesting opportunity for you non-traditional storytellers. Submission deadline March 15. Details below.

Hi there,

My name is Cristal Duhaime and I recently became the audio editor for a literary website based in Montreal called Carte Blanche. It's an online magazine published twice a year, in association with the Quebec Writers' Federation.

In the past, we've put up exciting storytelling work in traditional categories such as fiction, non-fiction and poetry writing; we're now looking to expand those categories to include sound. The deadline to submit audio "stories" for the spring issue is coming up soon on March 15th. The term "story" is used loosely; audio submissions can include soundscape, documentary, spoken word, author readings, comedy, experimental, etc. Audio pieces do not need to contain words (although they can!) but they should have a narrative progression, i.e. a beginning, middle, and end. Any additional details can be found here:

I thought this might be something of interest to your members so if you could help spread the word in any way, it would be much appreciated. We can offer only a small honorarium to those whose works we decide to publish but the site does get quite a bit of exposure so the experience might prove rewarding for audio producers in other ways.

As a radio producer and audiophile myself, (I currently work on CBC Radio's Wiretap) I'm quite familiar with the art and impact of storytelling through sound so I'm quite excited to open up the audio category to the site's followers.

Please get in touch with any questions you might have.

take care,

Cristal Duhaime
