Freely Written Vol. 1

Ready for a story break? Since 2021, the Freely Written podcast has offered 10-minute stories in a variety of styles. Now, 20 of those stories have been collected in this handy book. Toss it in your bag for reading on-the-go or gift it to a story-loving friend!

Haven’t listened to Freely Written yet? Here’s how the podcast works: stories are written from simple prompts, with no planning and very little editing, and then shared in its own episode. Stories can be in any genre. You never know where a free-written story will go!
