BATAVIA – BATV wants to showcase area writers and performers in a new reality show called “Project Publish.”

Starting Sunday, participants can audition and compete for the 14 slots available for “Project Publish,” a seven-week series that will broadcast live from BATV studios Sunday afternoons from Feb. 10 to March 24. There will be two resident judges and one guest judge, who will be a different person each week from the community.

“We are helping spotlight local talent, and it gives us good programming,” BATV station manager Holly Deitchman said. “We are looking for lots of people to audition.”

Auditions will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Batavia Public Library and from 2 to 4 p.m. Jan. 20 at the St. Charles Public Library. Registration starts at 1 p.m. each day.
