The Third Coast Radio Residency is an opportunity for producers to make progress on an audio story or documentary project.

During the week of April 17-23, a group of 8-10 producers will have the woodsy Ragdale retreat to themselves, to work, commune, and share expertise. Ragdale, one of the largest interdisciplinary artists’ communities in the country, is located in Lake Forest, 30 miles north of Chicago. Each artist is given a private room and workspace, and all meals are provided, including a family-style dinner each evening.

Third Coast will cover residents’ flights and ground transportation. Ragdale is generously subsidizing the costs of room and board so that participants pay only $210 for the entire Residency.

Applicants should submit project proposals by midnight (CT) on Wednesday, February 15. Those selected will be notified by March 1.
