If you're traveling somewhere--or even just taking the time to look around your usual haunts--we want to hear your observations of place and atmosphere.
For our Dispatches section, we're looking for audio stories recorded right there, on the spot, on location, with background noise included. Dispatches can be about a place, or about an event that's deeply connected to a particular place. Record your piece and send us an mp3 file under seven minutes in length (see our guidelines).
Recording is easy to do even with an iPhone, using any one of the voice-recorder apps like Hindenburg, Monle, Voice Memos, or Quick Voice. If you have an mp3-recorder, that'll work too, of course!
