Eat the Storms, the poetry podcast, hosted and produced by Irish poet Damien B Donnelly, now on 12+ platforms, provides a space for international voices in poetry and spoken word. The podcast is a platform for diversity of theme, accent and experience with submissions open to everyone from award-winning poets to spoken word performers to poems on unpublished pages.
Each season runs for an average of 15 episodes with a 6/8 week break between seasons and the podcast is always interested in finding new voices. Unless specified (Christmas, Valentines, Halloween, Pride) there are no themed episodes.
Unfortunately, as this is a non-profit platform, with no funding, I do not pay guests to be on the podcast, but, in my own spare time, I will promote your appearance on social media and on the Eat the Storms weekly blog.
As this is a one man show, I like to keep it intimate and connected and therefore as a new rule, do not deal with agents, nor, as mentioned above, talk of fees. I also don’t get paid.
As a guest, I promote each new episode on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and would appreciate you sharing any or all of these promotions on your own social media platforms so as many people know about your appearance and, in doing so, we interconnect with each other’s followers and promote healthy growth.
After a brief email, telling me a little about yourself and your writing and a link to one or two poems, I will need the following…
1) Audio recording (8 mins max, including a brief introduction and reading)
2) Bio in Third Person
3) Social media handles/website links
4) Profile photo and/or photograph of collections
all to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’ve previously been a guest on the podcast, you are welcome to simply send a new audio recording for the next season, along with any updated photos or bios or social media handles. we love returning Stormers.
