The Drum

Prompts

OUR AUGUST ISSUE

Our August 2017 issue features three stories about women--each one confronting power and finding, or looking for, ways to subvert or reclaim it. Writers Hannah Onoguwe, Josh Sheridan, and Val Maloof explore how their characters struggle to assert themselves against control, in marriage, in a religious sub-culture, and the circumstances of an ordinary day.

Stories from Our Print Journal Partners

The Drum partners with Harvard Review, Ploughshares, AGNI, and Post Road to bring you audio versions of the selected stories from these journals' print editions. Check here regularly for audio recordings performed by local actors. Grab a copy of their newest issues so you can read along while you listen.

Special Projects

From time to time, The Drum publishes special audio literary projects beyond our weekly short fiction and essays. MuseFlash with Grub Street's Muse and the Marketplace conference, Zip-Code Stories with WBUR, Stories on the Street, and recorded live events with the Boston Book Festival and Grub Street are just some of the additional programs you’ll find here.
