Just spotted this great opportunity for emerging poets: https://endoftheworldpodcast.com/apply

It reads: 

We're looking for 9 emerging poets to join the forthcoming series of Bedtime Stories for the End of the World and feature alongside our lead poets.

Bedtime Stories for the End of the World is a podcast series examining the power of myth in a time of political, social and ecological crisis. Our second series will launch in Spring 2021 and will feature poets including: Momtaza Mehri, Mona Arshi, Fiona Benson and Joe Dunthorne.

We want you to think about which myth, folk tale or fairy story you would save for future generations - protecting it from nuclear disaster, global apocalypse, or human forgetfulness. Why is it so important? What is its relevance today? How can rewriting it transform its meaning?

You will receive a paid commission to produce a 5-7 minute poem (or poem sequence) based on a myth of your choosing, to be broadcast during the new series. As part of this opportunity, you'll get to take part in a workshop and recording session with a lead artist, as well as receiving feedback on your work.
