Audio production of the winning story by celebrity narrator - value: $5500
Cash prize for the winning author: 75% of submission fees, or $250 (whichever greater)
Portable Story Series is a writing contest with an audio twist. Writers submit stories based on a theme we announce three times a year. A featured Judge selects the winner and 5 runners-up. The winning story is recorded by a celebrity narrator and a behind-the-scenes video is shot about the recording process. The audio production is posted on the Portable Story Series website as a free download. In lieu of download fees, we feature 3 charities or nonprofits with each contest and we encourage listeners to donate to one (or more) of the organizations. The winning author also receives a cash prize. Newsletter subscribers have access to new themes 1 month ahead of the general public.
