Fellow audiophiliacs, Third Coast, has opened up their annual ShortDocs competition and this year's theme is enticing! "Appetite" is the name of the game and creative interpretations of the word are welcome. All submissions, due April 30, must:
- be inspired by the idea of “appetite”
- two to three minutes in length
- presented in three “courses” (think: chapters)
- include one of the five tastes in the title: bitter, salty, sour, sweet, umami
I know spicy isn't considered a taste--but I think that's a travesty! I can think of lots of spicy stories for this competition. Maggie Lemere, one of my editors for Nowhere to Be Home, and I are planning on submitting. We're in the brainstorming phase right now but I'll keep you updated on our progress.
