Hello past and future UnFictional contributors!
We’re coming up on the 4 year anniversary of this radio program/podcast! Our audience is slowly building, we’ve won some awards, stories from the show have been featured on other radio programs both here in the US and around the English-speaking world. All in all it’s been an exciting and rewarding run, and it’s due in no small part to the contributions of fantastic audio producers like yourself. We hope we’ve made a fun place to make interesting and unusual stories. We want to do more!
We’re looking for great story ideas to produce over the next few months. We’re open to anything as long as it fits the show tone as laid out in submissions guidelines:
Strong sense of story, a little weird, emotional, funny, strange twists and surprises… First-person non-narrated stories are always great. If the story has good sound components that’s a big plus.
We pay decently for a local show!
If you have any friends or colleagues who produce great work, feel free to forward this message to them as well. You can send your pitches to me at this address or to firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to hearing from you!
