Nov 19, 2018

Who we are: a talk show that is equal parts poetry, art, and social change. A 55-minute version of each episode airs every Monday at 11 am on WRIR-LP 97.3 FM (Richmond Independent Radio), with uncut versions being released on our website and podcast. The format is interview based for the most part, though we're increasingly interested in producing special episodes with more of a documentary or narrative style. Additionally, we produce web-exclusive content for our side project, Crows & Pawns, a loose discussion on pop culture. Recently, the Prose & Cons team hosted its first solo live event, with plans to host this event regularly. We're also interested in publishing zines and chapbooks, as well as producing additional audio and video content for several planned projects.


What we are looking for: someone dedicated to helping produce, distribute, and advertise original creative content. Experience in audio or video editing is a plus, though we're willing to train the right candidate. Social media savvy, a knack for web design, and an interest in poetry, literature, and equality, are highly desirable for potential candidates. We are flexible in our requirements because we're looking for the right person, not the right resume. Part of the basic concept behind Prose & Cons is an accessibility to what might otherwise be considered high-minded topics. You don't have to have a degree to enjoy our show, and you don't have to have years of experience to work with us.


What we can offer: Experience! And credit. And feedback. Not money (we don't get paid, either).


How to apply: send a cover letter and resume to telling us why you have an interest in our program and what you feel you can add to our vision.
