Webinar: How to Pitch The Story Collider

Stories are powerful. Whether hilarious or heartbreaking, subversive or soothing, they reflect who we are and what matters to us. As a community, it deeply matters who takes the stage and what stories are told. We want to hear yours! 

On 24 October 2019, The Story Collider will host a very special edition of their live show for the Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO). This show is happening in conjunction with Deep Carbon 2019: Launching the Next Decade of Deep Carbon Science, an international science conference taking place from 24-26 October, 2019 in Washington, DC, USA. We are searching for five people to share their true, personal experiences on the theme of “a life in science”. 

The Story ColliderYour story might include almost anything—an important experiment gone awry, a strange day in the field, a childhood misadventure, love, loss, and more. Exotic locations and exciting action never hurt, but what we care about is how you’ve changed and grown. The Story Collider’s experienced producers will help you develop and prepare to tell your story—all you need to do is send a brief email describing the core idea.

Send your pitch to stories@storycollider.org with “DCO Story Idea" in the subject. The deadline for pitches is 19 July 2019. If you are curious or would like some inspiration, read more at https://www.storycollider.org/submissions or browse The Story Collider podcast archive at https://www.storycollider.org/podcasts.

You can watch a webinar with Story Collider Executive Director Liz Neeley. Liz will go over how to pitch, what The Story Collider shows involve, and answer any questions you might have about the process. You can also contact Katie Pratt of the DCO Engagement Team with logistical questions. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
