Submit a story to Audio Under the Stars
Audio Under the Stars is back! North Carolina’s favorite audio garden party is gearing up for its third season, and we’re looking for your stories. Here are our themes for 2016:
Destination Unknown: Trips, Travels, and Unexpected Journeys
Tell us of a time when you went in search of something: a new place, a lost love, a chance at following a dream. Or when you set out just for fun—where did the wanderlust take you and who did you meet along the way? We want stories of those eager for change and those longing for what’s left behind.
Danger: Tales of Mischief and Misfortune
We’re looking for stories with an element of danger, either real or imagined. A lurking threat, a prank gone wrong, bullets dodged or imminent disaster. These could be humorous or serious; ideally stories will have a bit of each.
Work It: Stories of Labor and Leisure
Drudgery or dream job—how do you make your money? What’s the oddest job you’ve ever taken? What would push you to walk away? At the end of the day, how do you put the world of work behind you? We’re looking for stories about any kind of work and play.
The ideal pieces are short and sweet, 2-8 minutes. We’ll occasionally consider pieces as long as 15 minutes, but nothing longer.
We love sound-rich stories that make us think, make us laugh, and take us to places near and far. We especially love pieces based in Durham, in North Carolina, or made by local radio producers. Share your work or work you find compelling made by someone else. We want to hear it all, even if it’s not a perfect fit for the theme. Got questions? Email us at
