Pitch Us a Story! - Israel Story Pitch Us a Story! - Israel Story

If you have a story you think we’d be interested, we’d love to hear from you!
The main information we’re looking for in a story pitch is:

 

1) What’s the story, what’s the conflict driving it, and what do you imagine as the climax?

 

2) Who are the characters, and whose voice(s) would be good for telling the story, and do you know if those characters would be willing to be recorded? (If you already have access to any relevant recordings, that’s good to know too.)

 

3) What’s at stake? The higher the stakes the better. Another way to think of this is, what makes listeners care– is there anything about the story/conflict that connects to a bigger question, or something that a lot of listeners would relate to?

 

4) What do you think is surprising about the story? This is especially important for the story on a big scale, but a few little surprising details like characters’ quirky habits or weird little coincidences can also be helpful! One thing to remember is that surprising is a little different in the context of a radio show/podcast–some things that are surprising in everyday life are predictable when they’re presented in mass media.

 

If you can write a few paragraphs to cover those bases (two pages max please, one page would be best), we’d love to take a look!

 

You can also send your pitch by email to: pitches@israelstory.org
