Stories from Our Print Journal Partners
The Drum partners with Harvard Review, Ploughshares, AGNI, and Post Road to bring you audio versions of the selected stories from these journals' print editions. Check here regularly for audio recordings performed by local actors. Grab a copy of their newest issues so you can read along while you listen.
From time to time, The Drum publishes special audio literary projects beyond our weekly short fiction and essays. Zip-Code Stories with WBUR, Stories on the Street, and recorded live events with the Boston Book Festival and Grub Street are just some of the additional programs you’ll find here.

Play the audio to hear the lovely voice of Jenna Blum, author of Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers, as she gives you a writing prompt for a 500-word(ish) piece. Write your piece, record yourself reading it aloud, and then send the audio to The Drum's Soundcloud account. Visit our Soundcloud to hear what people came up with.
