Writers Wanted

North East Geek Feast is relaunching with the next episode and will soon feature radio plays every other month. Or Pod-Plays, as I'm calling them.

What we're looking for:

1. A one/two paragraph pitch (to featuring a protagonist, some clue to their character, what they want to achieve/have to struggle against and the outcome - in terms of whether they succeed and what changes in their character that causes.

2. Although the length and medium is great for a short story with a twist at the end, we're still looking for something that makes a statement or raises questions about the situation/issue you're delving into.

3. No more than 4 voices (including any narration).

4. Clever use of audio - the listener is 'blind'. 5. Sci-fi, horror and fantasy genre pieces. We also need you to understand that there is no money in the podcast game but it'll be great exposure and a learning tool - hear your work read aloud/work with editors.

Yeah, that's another good point - you should be able to take, respond to and utilise constructive feedback in terms of script-editing.
