jari chevalierEvery four months, Portable Stories holds a short story writing contest based on a theme. The winning story is then recorded by a narrator at CDM Sound Studios and posted online along with a behind-the-scenes video about the winning story. There is a $10 entry fee, and the winning author receives $250, or 75% of the proceeds generated from story submissions (whichever is greater). Listeners can download the story for free or make a contribution to one of several featured organizations.

“How You Like”, by Jari Chevalier [pictured], is the winning story for the inaugural Portable Stories contest theme: HUNGER. This story was performed by January LaVoy  and runs 23 minutes 52 seconds.
