We’re looking for twelve emerging artists to join our project, collaborating with our lead artists to help create and record new work. Each podcast will feature the work of two emerging poets and one lead poet.

You’ll be asked to write a 5-10 minute poem (or poem sequence), based on a myth of your choosing. As part of this opportunity, you’ll get to take part in one evening workshop and one day of recording with the lead artists. There will also be the opportunity to write for the website, and participate in readings to promote the project. The workshops will take place in February, and recording in late April. Please see the application form for more details

There is a £300 fee for this commission. 

We are based in London, but travel costs for writers outside of London are available.

We especially encourage applications from under-represented groups, including women, BAME people and LGBT+ people.

HOW TO APPLY

Fill out an application form and a monitoring form, and provide us with a sample of your work (3 poems, no more than 3 pages total).

Please send your completed forms and work sample to wearebedtimestories@gmail.com, with the subject line APPLICATION [YOUR NAME]. PDF or Word documents only please.

Applications close at 5pm, Friday 12th January.
