Submit Your Own Short List
Sixty-Second Stories, with the Title at the End

Send your Short Lists, questions or comments to Transom.org
In collaboration with Transom.org, a site by and for audio producers, Day to Day is calling on listeners to make a list: pet peeves, things that cross your mind while waiting for the bus, what you love about your dog, something funny, poetic, political, whatever...
Here's how it works: You read your list out loud for 60 seconds, and then at the end reveal what the list was about.
How do I submit a Short List?
The best way is to create a high quality audio file, post it on the web, then send the link via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn how to create the audio files, look at the Tools section of Transom's Web site -- all you need to know is there. If you're a radio producer-type, as are many who visit Transom.org, feel free to produce your piece with music or sounds.
If none of this is possible for you, you can phone it in. Call 1-866-TRANSOM (866-872-6766) and follow the voice mail instructions. Be sure to leave your name and a call-back number or e-mail. Or you can snail-mail your list on CD or other media to this address:
Atlantic Public Media
Box 445, 3 Water Street
Woods Hole, MA 02543
What happens next?
The Transom and Day to Day teams will review your list and get back to you. Don't be discouraged -- only a few will make it to the air. We'll pay a small acquisition fee for those that do, and will feature them as a group on Transom.org sometime in the future.
