Call for pitches – Modern Notion

Multimedia site Modern Notion wants your stories – details below!

Hey everyone – We're still (always) looking for more pitches to Modern Notion. We want stories for the ultra-curious.

Most stories will be in the 2-8 minute range. Here are some ongoing themes of our show.

What If – A story revolving around a hypothetical question that's popped into our heads, and sure, it's totally crazy, but what if… Think about people in history who have asked a what if question, or ask one yourself and bring in experts to answer it. What if history had gone differently? Or for futurists: What happens when you can download your brain to your computer? What happens when we find definitive proof of parallel universes? What happens when we make contact with aliens?

Thank God for Science – Stories and topics focused around the intersection of science and religion and the not-so-clear boundary that exists between the two

Builders – Stories from people who’ve built things with their hands or minds they never imagined they could
Lost – About all the things and non-things we've lost: languages, ideas, documents, people, information, etc.

Heirlooms – The things we pass down: traditions, objects, morals, manners, etc.

Conspiracies, Cults, and Creeps – Checking into a conspiracy theory, retelling a creepy story, or exploring a cult

General History or Science Stories

People Are Strange – Short profiles of people from history who did something weird

In your pitch to, include 1-2 paragraphs about your story, approximate length, and a link to your previous work.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
