Now Here This
Now Here This is an online platform for student-produced audio storytelling. It was started at Brown University in 2014 by Liza Yeager and Sophie McKibben. At Brown, Now Here This publishes audio stories and records live storytelling events with the Brown Storytellers.
We’re now in the process of expanding to host student stories from across the country and develop tools and resources for new producers. Our goal is to promote student-produced storytelling and foster a new generation of audio storytellers by teaching students the skills of audio storytelling and providing them with a platform where they can showcase and promote their work. Basically, we want to make it easier for students to get their foot in the radio-door.
Selected episodes are slated to air monthly on Rhode Island Public Radio in the near future. Details will be posted here.
