Songs in the Desert is a collaborative audio project about Christian hymns and our responses to them. What is your favorite hymn and why? What's a hymn that speaks to you?
This project will be published as a podcast and on the web every weekday during Lent 2020. Hymns need not be Lent-specific (and Alleluias are okay!).
A different contributor is sought for every day of the project.
This sign-up sheet is for the date by which you will submit your finished reflection. This deadline is two weeks before the day your reflection will air. (For example: Feb. 13 will air on Feb. 27; Mar. 2 will air on Mar. 16; etc.)
Submissions may be text or audio (you can record yourself with whatever you have, even the voice memo app on your smartphone).
Submissions should be no more than 600 words, or five minutes long (remember these will be sent out almost daily). Longer submissions will be edited for length.
Please note that there's no need to submit a "perfect take" of audio. Keep the tape rolling and feel free to say things again or phrase things differently. Our editor can cut out any "ums" or coughs and can trim the audio down to something ready for prime time.
There is no expectation that contributors submit music.
