Shortalk is recording classic and new stories with professional actors that are then made available for downloading off its site. The site allows to listen before you buy, so the customer knows what they are buying, the download is quick and the outlay is small - and the story will get them through their way to work or wherever they are going. Children's mp3s can be loaded up with a variety stories to get them through their journey as well.
So what is different about this site than other audio download offerings?
Shortalk is asking writers to submit their short stories for consideration. If the story is recorded they get paid and their work can be heard all over the world.
There are blogs where people can discuss the short story, or share their views on, or give hints and tips with writing.
There is a competition that in turn generates free content for listeners to download.
