For episode three of Cataclysm 2018, we’re asking contributors to think about all notions of positivity. Which ironically, may not be positive at all. Whichever way you look at it, we want to hear your ideas. Don’t worry if you’re new to audio storytelling! The team at Cataclysm is here to help you through it and it’s a whole heap of fun. Pitch your ideas at the google form here.
Below you’ll find prompts and inspiration for your audio package. These are just a guide, if you’ve got an idea that isn’t here but you think is great, then by all means – pitch it to us! Below you’ll find all the important dates for the submission of your piece.
Have a listen of past episodes of Cataclysm on iTunes or at cataclysm.podbean.com.
