Ode to Nowhere is a monthly poetry show focussing on unpublished or less than widely known poets. Submissions: Please send contributions for consideration to email@example.com This is a UK-based show which airs on a USA-based internet radio station. The show is presented by Kate Lynn-Devere - that would be me. I'm not an expert on poetry, in fact I'm not an expert on anything except being me, and I'm not always very good at that. I've often thought the role of me could be better played by someone else, but it isn't a very prestigious role and nobody seems to want to take it on, so here I am. Please state in your email that we have permission to read your poem on air and to include your poem in a podcast (we’d like permission to publish the text on our website too, but this isn’t essential). All copyright of your poem will continue to belong to you, the author. We will clearly identify every poet – proper attributation is very important to us; we only want to help you gain a wider audience for your work. All types of poetry are welcomed. Articles about poetry, and music which has been inspired by or has inspired poetry are also welcome, as are stories about personal experiences of poetry. You needn't be a poet, perhaps there is a particular poet or poem that has helped you through some difficult times, or has meant a lot to you in some way. Poets who would like to be interviewed on the show are encouraged to get in touch. Audio submissions are preferred, but I am happy to read (or arrange for a more suitable reader if a male voice or regional dialect is required) for those poets who might not have access to recording equipment. Obscenity that is used appropriately to make a point is acceptable in submissions, but no hate speech of any kind will be tolerated. Suggestions about how the show might be improved are always gratefully received. Please listen to the podcast to get a clearer idea about the show, and feel free to get in touch with any further questions. firstname.lastname@example.org Visit the show on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/OdetoNowhere Listen to a podcast here: http://gashouseradio.com/2012/02/ode-to-nowhere-poetry-podcast2/
