upheaval – stories from isolation

call for audio stories under 2 minutes

theme: epiphany

Memoria is a podcast about life’s turning points.  With the world going topsy-turvy over this pandemic, we have all struggled to adapt to a new way of doing things. These are (potentially) the moments for self-discovery. Small or large. Maybe even upheaval.
So we want to know if have had had a moment of self-discovery, good or bad while in iso? Or experienced a major turning point?
Well, we want to hear it!
Send us your story as an audio file. It should be no more than 2 minutes long. You can tell your story however way you like as long as it has some form of narrative structure with a beginning, middle and an end. 
Nowhere quiet to record? That’s okay. You’re in iso. But try to minimise the background noise if you can as it may be distracting to audiences listening to your story. 
Stories will be published on Memoria’s social media channels.  Favourites will be compiled into a special podcast episode/s in the coming weeks or months.
