Writing Class Radio Stories – Podcast (US)

Writing Class Radio Introduction Video from Writing Class Radio on Vimeo.


Writing Class Radio is a podcast of a writing class.  If you love stories and get inspired by hearing other people tell their stories and want to learn a little bit about how to write your own stories, then this podcast is for you. What they’re looking for in submissions:

“Your story must be a story. There is a main character (you) who wants something (or wants to avoid something). Something happens to the main character—an event or situation—which challenges/conflicts with the main character’s original desire, and in the end, there is some sort of resolution. The main character gets what he or she wants, or doesn’t get it, but more importantly, the character learns something. Your submission should have both a remarkable situation and an emotional story.”

Payment: US$50-$100

Submission Highlights

  • 1. Write “Submission” in the subject line of your email.
  • 2. In the body of the email, tell us in three (3) sentences what your story is about.
  • 3. Submit your story in a Word document to info[@]writingclassradio.com
  • Listen to the podcast so you know what kind of stories they seek

  • Write about something eventful, the kind of thing that happened where you rushed home to tell someone. But it’s not just enough to have a remarkable situation; your submission should also be a story.

  • Write a story about YOU.

  • Write about something different. Don’t tell us the story about how your boyfriend cheated on you. Tell us about how you were the mistress.

  • Be vulnerable. Be evil. Be real. Sometimes the main character is the villain.

  • Take us inside a world we don’t know or haven’t seen.

  • Be yourself. Let us hear your voice in the piece.

  • Be casual. Writing Class Radio is not a reading, it’s storytelling.

Other Notes

  • Work can be previously published. (Yay!) Just indicate where.
