Call for Submissions for ‘Round Here, Detroit Podcast Festival

Have you made an audio story in our about the greater Detroit area?

Between now and June 1st, Radio Campfire is taking audio story submissions for Radio Campfire: Round Here — audio stories, sound portraits, and sonic experiments from our neck of the woods.

Radio Campfire is excited to present ‘Round Here’ at The Matrix Theater as part of the Detroit Podcast Festival and feature all the best local sound and story.

What we’re looking for:

The stories don’t have to be about Detroit (though they certainly can be!) but should be made in Metro-Detroit or by Metro-Detroit-based creators. We’re looking for all sorts of audio work — sound-rich stories, audio portraits, sonic essays, audio postcards, vivid field recordings, things you just made, or things you made a long time ago … the list goes on. We’re looking for pieces 1-10 minutes in length. And our story sweet spot lies in audio pieces that play with sound and story to take you on a surprising or experimental journey for the ears. If the story sounds like a straight-forward news feature, we are probably not the right fit. That said, if you have ANY questions or an idea you want to talk through, please reach out to us at with the word “Question” in the subject line.

Also, if you remember hearing a story on-theme that really stuck with you, or know a Detroit-area producer we should talk to, drop us a line at and tell us about it and we’ll try to track it down

How to Submit:

Send all submissions through this Radio Campfire google form.

You may submit up to 3 pieces. Each piece must be submitted separately.

Looking forward to listening!
