Literary Magazine Goes Online And Into Your Headphones
Last week, the New York Times announced that it would publish e-book best-seller lists in fiction and nonfiction in 2011. As more technology harnesses the power of the printed word, e-readers, e-books and e-zines have started dominating the literary landscape.
But what about audio?
Audio books have entertained many cross-country drivers for years. But Henriette Lazaridis Power, a Boston-area author, saw a hole. “What if I want to listen to a story that’s commuter-length?” Power wondered. “How about something I can listen to in a single T or car ride?”
Earlier this year, Power launched “The Drum,” an online audio literary magazine that will do just that. We take a closer look — and an even closer listen.
- Henriette Lazaridis Power, Editor, The Drum
- Jennifer Haigh, Contributor to The Drum, best-selling author of Mrs. Kimble, The Condition and Baker Towers
