Online Telltale Weekly seeks to partner with performance groups and individuals with original audio content (radio dramas, skits, short stories and memoirs read by the author, speeches, interviews, etc.) and/or interest in recording performances of work written by others. Anyone with a home recording studio and a passion for literature is encouraged to participate in the “Funding a Free Audio Library” portion of the project.
For original work, Telltale Weekly pays 50-percent royalties for non-exclusive distribution rights for at least one year. Works are offered via Bitpass as little as 25 cents as DRM-free MP3s and Ogg Vorbis downloads.
In addition, Telltale Weekly seeks to record, produce and sell performances of at least 50 public domain texts a year—with the intention of releasing them under the Creative Commons Attribution License for five years or a 100,000 sales after their first appearance at the site, whichever comes first—to gradually build, fund and create a free audio equivalent of an online library.
