Durham’s favorite summer audio festival is launching its second season and to kick it off we’re looking for pieces ranging from 2-15 minutes that (more or less) fit the theme of Homecoming: Stories of Leaving and Return.

At some point, we all leave home. Or do we? And who does the journey change–the ones who leave or the ones who stay behind? Tell us about your prodigal sons and why you can’t go home again. Or about a really cheesy dress you bought for that high school dance.

We love sound-rich stories that make us think, make us laugh, and take us to places near and far. We especially love pieces based in Durham, in North Carolina, or made by local radio producers. Share your work or work you find compelling made by someone else. We want to hear it all, even if it’s not a perfect fit for the theme.

Submit a story for consideration and send in as many pieces as you’d like! The deadline is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, 2015.
