Do you write flash fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or plays? Are you interested in voice acting or music composition? The YDN Podcast Desk’s first audio narrative podcast, Attune, is now accepting submissions from writers, voice actors, and composers for our Season 4! In Seasons 1, 2, and 3 (, our student artists had the opportunity to work with Yale alumni such as voice actress Michaela Jill Murphy (a.k.a. Toph’s voice in Avatar) and award-winning composer Bobby Cronin, as well as published writers such as Coco Ma and R.F. Kuang. Our submission deadline is 11:59 PM on Feb 19th.

WRITERS imageimage: Please keep submissions under 1000 words or 10 minutes for a play. If your work is selected, our producers will work with you to create a script for production, coordinate voice talent and an original soundtrack, and sound-engineer a final product to be released as part of Attune’s fourth season.
