Got a burning story idea? Stoke the flames at the Third Coast International Audio Festival by pitching your concept live to a panel of editors from This American Life, the BBC, Snap Judgment, KCRW’s UnFictional, NPR, and Marketplace.
Pitches are due by August 20 to award-winning independent producer Emily Botein, our Pitch Editor/Panel Moderator extraordinaire. Up to 12 makers will be selected to refine their story ideas with Emily, and present them to a pre-assigned editor during two separate sessions of AIR's popular panel, Pitch Perfect: The Art of Editorial Persuasion.
Apply today! Pitch panel alums have successfully had their work picked up for broadcast. Listen to a few of their pieces here:
- Dear Lice Guy: What's Bugging Me? Ari Daniel Shapiro, All Things Considered
