River Action is seeking local writers to participate in the “RiverPlay Podcast Series,” a collaboration with WVIK. Thanks to funding from QC Arts, River Action and WVIK will commission and produce eight short (3 min.) radio plays by local writers about local natural places.
For the past three years, River Action and WVIK have collaborated to produce weekly RiverWay Stories, three-minute radio essays on a broad range of river-related topics, including environmental concerns, conservation efforts, history, and recreation.
This year, River Action and WVIK will build on this collaboration with a series of short, three-minute radio plays that we’ll commission, record, and post to WVIK’s new environmental website, TallgrassQC.org, where the plays will be available to the public for download.
Written by local writers, set in local natural places, and featuring local actors, the plays will be tiny soundscapes of Quad Cities parks and wild places that audiences can listen to in the very parks and wild places in which the plays are set.
