The ninth season of the show kicked off in style in January! Two new authors, and a couple thousand downloads/streaming listens!
Not a bad start at all!
The overall #WordCountPodcast season theme is LANDSCAPES. And we have another winter scape to test your creativity:
The title of this month’s show is “The Long Walk” and I can’t wait to see what our writers come up with this time!
The guidelines for submission to the show are below–and anyone can send in a story for consideration. While I certainly love the stories our Word Count Irregulars supply, I’m always open to new writers and new ideas.
I would love to hear from you, either with a story submission or via social media. I have a Facebook Page that could use a few ‘likes.’ The more listeners and contributors we have, the better the shows can be.
There are over 450 original stories at this point—all free for your listening pleasure, all we ask is for people to help get the word out. Click the link:

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:

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.
