Field Reporters

We here at the Cloudy Day Art poetry podcast are looking for individuals interesting in becoming field reporters for the show. In an effort to expose more “everyday” poets to my listener base I decided to enlist the help of you the listener.

I am looking for individuals who would like to conduct audio interviews with poets in the interviewer’s local area. There are so many undiscovered and undercover poets out there who write really good poetry with really good inspiration.

The interview length should be between 7 and 20 minutes in length and should include at least one original poem by the poet. I chose 7 minutes as the minimum length because it is almost impossible to discover the inspiration behind a poet in such a short time.

In these interviews, the inspiration is just as important as the poem.

What are the qualifications?

The only qualifications are that you are willing to try something new and try to find the heart of the poet you interview.

Do I need to commit to multiple interviews?

Not at all.
You can do just one interview if you choose to. You can do 20 interviews spread out over the course of a year at whatever schedule you choose and whenever you feel the urge. No contract.

Who are you looking for?

There are a variety of types of field reporters that I am looking for:

  • Someone who just wants to contribute to the show.
  • Someone who is interested in podcasting and would like to “test the waters”.
  • Someone who is already podcasting, but a poetry interview doesn’t fit their format.
  • Someone who is a fan of a great poet and wants to help promote them.
  • What’s in it for me?

    Well, I make no money from this, so I can’t pay you anything, but I’d really appreciate your help.
    However, feel free to plug your blog, podcast, website, etc in your recording. You podcasters can think of it as an extended promo for you and your show.

    How do I submit?

    Just send a link to where I can download your MP3 to CloudyDayArt [at] gmail.com. Let me know if you have any questions about how to record or anything else at all.

    Feel free to leave comments and questions below as well.
