Writing is hard. It should be.
Getting heard should be a little bit easier.
Unfortunately, emerging writers don’t often get the exposure they deserve unless they become their own marketing department.
The Other Stories is a platform where writers can share their work, and where editors, agents, and readers can discover new, struggling, and already established talent.
Our format is simple. Authors read a piece of fiction, and then the host interviews them. With the help of Electronic Mike, our technical director and composer, the podcast is fully produced and authors’ fiction is released with originally scored music in the background.
The Other Stories features good writing and good stories, whether they discuss mermaids in the sea or married couples in Brooklyn.
Stick around and discover new and wonderful writing with us!
