The revolution will not be televised

The Sarah Lawrence International Audio Fiction Award (also known as "The Sarahs") is a new initiative that will transform the audio landscape and encourage everyone—writers, audio producers, sound artists, musicians—to re-think what is possible in the radio drama format. We celebrate exceptional entries through our podcast “Serendipity,” and every year we will reward the best work with an awards ceremony and $3,750 worth of prize money.

MORE THAN AN AWARD—A Spark

Where to start? Listen to the Serendipity podcast. Get your creative juices flowing with our Very, Very Short Short Stories Contest. Get inspired by these original audio fiction pieces. And last but not least, SUBMIT your audio fiction stories for The Sarah Lawrence International Audio Fiction Award this fall. We’re excited to hear what you make. Welcome to the Sarahs. It’s more than an award — it’s a revolution.

THe 2016 sarah Awards Ceremony!

Thanks to all who came out for our first ever Sarah Awards Ceremony held on Friday, April 1 at WNYC's Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. The inestimable Glynn Washington of Snap Judgment was the Master of Ceremonies and featured performances by Batala NYC and Radiotopia's The Heart. The winners received $3750 in cash prizes. Academic Federal Credit Union provided the money for the winners and KCRW provided the award money for "Best New Artist" and travel money so winners who traveled from all over the world could join us. Special thanks also goes to: Public Radio Exchange (PRX), WNYC's Jerome L. Greene Performance Space, Catskill Brewery, Yonkers Brewing Co., Butter & Scotch, and many others who helped make the evening the best siren call to the latest audio revolution.
