Hey FC folks – happy almost holidays! I'm writing to tell you about the Third Coast Radio Residency: a unique opportunity for radio and podcast producers from diverse backgrounds to spend a week immersed in work, sonic camaraderie & mentorship, now open for applications thru January 5, 2018!
Here's more info:
The Third Coast Radio Residency is a rare opportunity to take a week away from the craziness of daily life & make progress on an audio story or documentary project. This year’s Radio Residency takes place May 1-6, 2018 at Ragdale, a woodsy artists’ community just outside Chicago. Producers receive their own private living and work space, one-on-one editing sessions from mentor Nishat Kurwa & additional workshops from Third Coast alum Sarah Geis. This week is for the producers to use however they’d like: with plenty of time to work, wander, commune & share expertise. Plus, Residents share (delicious) family dinners.
Note: this Residency is generously subsidized, and the total cost to each participant will be $210, for six nights (+ all travel).
Read about the alums from our 2017 Radio Residency (alums from both ’16 & ’17 continue to stay in touch & support one another!)
Producers of all experience levels are encouraged to apply.
And if you'd like to help spread the word, here's a sample tweet:
