Welcome to the Unlatched Podcast
Unlatched Podcast is an attempt to replicate the space created by a traditional open mic, offering writers and musicians an opportunity to share their work. It is also a place for those of us who miss sitting and listening to other peoples’ work.
We won’t pretend that podcasts, poetry, stories and music can fix what’s happening at the moment, but it can offer a distraction, a break for a few minutes from worrying – a momentary throwing-open of a window to let in the voices of others. As a creative person you may be struggling to write or compose at the moment, so if you don’t feel like creating anything new please dig out an old poem or story or song and share it with us. Whatever you have to perform, we would love to hear and share it.
This is an ongoing project that will develop over time. Like any open mic, it relies on a wider community to get involved. This really is open to everyone, whether you’re a seasoned performer or just starting to write your own work. Please explore the website: listen to the most recent episode, check the submission guidelines/tips and do get in touch if there’s anything you’d like to know that isn’t covered.
