The Word Count Podcast is truly one of my joys. I direct, produce, write and host the show—and also come up with the various themes our writers—The “Word Count Irregulars”—use to create unique and brilliant stories.
All for the listener and lovers of great storytelling.
There are no endorsements…no paid stories. It’s all done for the love of the written word. And downloads are always free. Always.
The only thing I ask is a little help via social media to point folks at the show.
To start listening go to either my Libsyn Page or to iTunes:
There are forty-four shows available right now!
So it’s now 2015…and I’ve sobered up nicely—hope you all had a happy and healthy holiday!
But it’s back to work…so clear away all the empty bottles, discarded pizza boxes, and relatives that just won’t go home so you can write in peace.
The theme for the next show consists of three words:
FROZEN, WHISKEY, TIME
Please read and comply with ALL the Guidelines below. I look forward to your stories!
THE WORD COUNT EPISODE 45
Submission Guidelines (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)
DEADLINE: I must receive your submission by FRIDAY 16 JANUARY 2015 by MIDNIGHT Eastern time.
THE DETAILS: The work must be an original work based on the key words:
“Frozen, Whiskey, Time”
Do NOT exceed SEVEN minutes.
As this is a podcast, I need to receive a file of YOU, a friend or multiple friends reading (singing or otherwise performing) your work. MP3 FORMAT ONLY, and please attach your MP3 file to an e-mail or contact me for a Dropbox link.
Your submission MUST also contain the following:
- Your pen name

- Your Twitter handle (if you have one)
- A photo of you I can use for the show notes

Send your file to firstname.lastname@example.org (or via the dropbox link I can provide) by 16 January 2015. You can also e-mail me with questions beforehand. I do reserve the right NOT to post your submission, but will communicate that to you should it be the case. I add the ‘Explicit’ tag to the ‘cast, so if your story uses adult themes or language that’s ok—but it should be necessary for the story.
I’ll only be accepting SEVEN stories this time—so get moving! J
