What do you write? How do you write? And why does writing matter?
Read650 is interested in short, personal meditations about any aspect of writing and the writing life for the “Between the Lines” segment of our new podcast, currently in development. Do you have some thoughts, observations, or hard-earned wisdom to share about writing — or about not writing, and the many ways to procrastinate? About developing your writer voice? Maybe some sage advice from a mentor, or the struggle to have something published? If your piece is selected for the podcast, we’ll help you create a quality audio recording of your performance using your smartphone (Maximum 350 to 400 words / three-minutes).

Read650 is a not-for-profit literary forum promoting established and emerging writers through curated live and digital performances celebrating the spoken word.
Read650 features true personal stories—two pages, five minutes, and 650 words long—read aloud by the writer before an audience. You can learn more and see videos at Read650.org
Writers featured in our live events are coached and rehearsed in order to present them and their work in the best possible light. Individual readings are professionally recorded for our video archive and YouTube channel, and many writers are showcased and promoted in e-blasts, podcasts,
broadcasts, and printed anthologies. Writers retain the rights to their work and have unrestricted access to their videos.
ENTRY FEE: $3.00 fee to submit electronically per reading period. PayPal and all major credit cards accepted.
