* Online lit mags are publishing some of the most intriguing writing available today. Every Monday, I post a pointer to a site that offers fiction and/or poetry either as free content or as samples from subscriber issues. Today’s pointer is to Bound Off Literary Audio Magazine.
I’ve written before about how helpful listening to fiction has been for me. Bound Off takes original short stories and turns them into download-able audio podcasts that you can get directly from their site, by email, or via iTunes subscription. Many of the stories are read by the authors, which is especially cool.
Bound Off is a monthly magazine of literary short stories, founded in 2006 and based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Our mission is to merge the oral tradition of storytelling with new technology to create a digital audio magazine.
Bound Off is an independent, nonprofit organization committed to paying authors for their work. All staff are unpaid volunteers.
We aspire to showcase work that is compelling and driven by narrative, with a force that keeps the listener listening. We are dedicated to publishing stories by both the established and emerging writer.
