Call for Submissions #12 – POSTCARDS FROM THE FUTURE

It is that time again. The time when we want your words. We want to put them in our ears.

When we say ‘words’ we want anything that involves you making noises; it’s only limited by what your mind can come up with and a time constraint: a maximum of five minutes in length (a limit, rather than a target). We’re interested in any style of writing, we want to show off the range of spoken word. We are happy to broadcast previously published works.

Whatever you send, the podcast will be set to an ambient soundtrack, so we ask that the recordings are vocals only.

Recordings can be sent to lies.dreamingpodcast at gmail dot com by the 31st of August. 

The theme for the podcast is Postcards from the Future.

We’re looking forward to your responses!

 

All submissions will receive a response within 10 days of the deadline passing. All pieces included in the podcast will receive a £5 payment.

Napowrimo – Writing Prompts

  2. Greg Rusedski
  3. No
  4. A poem that is in alphabetical order
  5. There is a baby on the train and it is staring at you
  6. An erasure of ‘Feel It’ by The Tamperer feat. Maya
  7. A poem that includes all the numbers between 1 and 10 in it
  8. Flat Earth poetry
  9. Walking somewhere rural at night (plaintive, whisky laden)
  10. Walking somewhere rural at night (the fear is consuming you)
  11. Pockets
  12. Please do not share this photo
  13. Sonnet Haiku
  14. A klaxon goes off every time you have an impure thought
  15. Monsters University, eh?
  16. Try to smuggle an acrostic past everybody
  17. Things no one told me about poetry
  18. A poem that is on fire
  19. I am made of glass, you are made of glass, everything is made of glass
  20. New year, nu metal
  21. Troll time
  22. A gritty reboot of you
  23. Everything used to be a pie
  24. The year 3000
  25. Schiehallion’s Tinder profile
  26. The taxidermied poet
  27. A poem without a beginning or end
  28. A letter to your MP
  29. First breath after coma
  30. What is a clown?

If you do write anything based on these, we’d love to hear it. Send your favourite ones to lies dot dreamingpodcast at gmail dot com by the end of May, and we’ll put a podcast out. We prefer poems to be under five minutes long and be vocals only.

We also have another submission window open until the end of April: One Sentence Only. 

 

 

 

 

Call For Submissions: One Sentence Only

EDIT: We have reopened submissions for this podcast until the end of August.

10-sentence

It is that time again. The time when we want your words. This time, though, we want something different. We want you to send in just one sentence.

Why, you might ask? Because once the submission deadline has passed we are going to arrange as many of the sentences you have sent us into a poem or a story, whatever we can come up with. There is no specific theme for this call for submissions so send us whatever kind of sentence takes your fancy.

Whatever you do send, the podcast will be set to an ambient soundtrack so we ask that the recordings are vocals only. We also ask that you write your sentence in the body of the email so it is easier for us to arrange them.

Recordings can be sent to lies.dreamingpodcast at gmail dot com by the 31st of August.  We’re looking forward to your responses!
