You might have noticed that we recently renamed Litro Spoken Word as Litro Lab. When before we simply invited submissions from our readers and writers in the form of MP3 readings of their stories, now we are taking charge of Litro Lab as a reincarnated podcast with more direction, though we still welcome submissions.
We don’t plan to stick to one particular format or subject; each episode will take on a life of its own as we explore the audio possibilities of short stories, poetry, true storytelling, and interviews with various authors and publishing industry professionals. Emily Cleaver, a long-time Litro contributor who has had experience of telling stories live at Liars League and Spark London as well as on radio, will be heading Litro Lab, so if you’d like to participate, either as a writer or a reader or if you just have a bright idea, feel free to get in touch at [email protected] or @EmilyCleaver.
Today we kick off a new series on Litro Lab, where we invite a writer to choose a short story they love and talk to us about why they love it. Our first guest author is Alison Moore, whose debut novel The Lighthouse—which I recently reviewed for Litro—has been longlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. Alison’s pick is “Adventure” by Sherwood Anderson, from his 1919 story cycle Winesburg, Ohio: A Group of Tales of Ohio Small Town Life, read by actor Greg Page. Enjoy, and please leave comments and suggestions so we can improve as we go along.
