Life Lab Notes is now accepting submissions for the 2016 Audio Advent Calendar!
The Audio Advent Calendar is a secular, daily podcast celebrating the traditions that bring us together, and the foods, rituals, and music that connect us. We are looking for one to two minute sketches, stories, poems, and essays that are heart-warming, light, comedic, dramatic, and thought-provoking. It’s the podcast version of an advent calendar, so instead of a piece of chocolate every day, you get a story treat! Personal, historical, educational, entertaining stories that honour our diversity and focus on the good stuff we have in common.
Submissions must be no longer than two minutes.
Deadline for submissions is October 15.
Email written sketches, stories, poems, or essays to SilvieZamora@mac.com
Accepted submissions will be recorded by Life Lab Notes and podcast daily, from December 1st through the 25th.
