A Transom Special Feature with NPR’s Day to Day
|UPDATE: Visit Shortlists 2007|
What is a Short List?
It’s a list you create from your experience or research or daily life. You read it out loud for about 60 seconds and then tell us at the end what the list WAS. It’s a story, with the title coming at the end. It might be funny, poetic, political… you decide. For examples, you can listen to Monika
Mueller’s lists here on Transom which inspired this idea.
How do I submit one?
The best way is to create a high quality audio file, post it on the web, then email us (email@example.com) the URL. To learn how to create such audio and such files, look at the TOOLS section of Transom. It’s all there. If you’re a radio producer-type, as are many who visit Transom, feel free to produce your piece with music or sounds. If none of this is possible for you, you can phone it in. Call 1-866-TRANSOM (866-872-6766) and follow the voicemail instructions. Be sure to leave your name and a call-back number or email. Or, you can mail us your list on CD or other media at the address below.
What happens next?
The Transom and Day-To-Day teams will review your list and get back to you. Probably, only a few will make it to the air. We’ll pay a small acquisition fee for those that do and will feature them as a group on Transom sometime in the future.
We hope to hear from you…
