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 fifth season, and we’re looking for your stories. Here are our themes for 2018:

Connections: Lost and Found
We’re looking for stories about special friendships, unlikely allegiances, surprising encounters and missed connections; the bonds that knit people, families, and communities together, and what happens when those fall apart.

From teenage drama to total fiascos, we delve into themes of struggle and unease. Stories can be funny and cringe-inducing, but we’re also looking for thoughtful narratives of facing one’s fears and overcoming challenges.

Appetites and Desires
How do our needs, both physical and emotional, bring us together? When do they pit people against others vying for the same resources? We’re looking for stories on food, hunger, ambition, and passion on a personal scale, and as part of larger systems.

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. Got questions? Email us at
