A task for you
This afternoon, we attended a planning meeting for the local radio co-op, who is looking into getting into radio theatre and adding variety to their program. They’re very interested in doing a show about 600 seconds in January, where actors would read selected stories for 10 to 15 minutes, and then they’d interview me about the project for the remaining 15 to 10 minutes. I don’t think I can be interesting for 10 minutes, on just that one topic, but that’s the interviewer’s problem, now, isn’t it.
Would you please, by December 31
, post links here, for my reference, of the two stories you wrote that are your favorites, that you would be willing to have read on a radio program?
You're allowed to edit them for minor mechanics corrections, but if you start to sieze up over making it perfect, I will scold you. You can assume that I will clean up any mechanics errors, without changing your wording, voice, or intent, for the program. Feel free to provide specifics on how you'd like your pieces read (e.g., by one woman; as a dialog, but with a separate narrator; as this script adaptation I've written).
I'm sure you know how passionate I am about copyrights. I will ensure that you are credited. The 600 seconds site will also be mentioned. If you don't give me express permission to use a piece, then rest assured that I will not include it in the show.
I think it will be pretty easy for me to get a recording of the show, so I will share that with you if possible. I'm very excited about this.
