HEAR Now is the audio equivalent of a film festival for fans, performers and producers of contemporary audio story-telling in all its forms: live and scripted solo performances, multi-voiced performance, classic radio drama, experimental narrative, and much more.

This four-day Festival offers a multi-faceted program showcasing the many forms of audio fiction and sound art story-telling in theaters and other “listening” venues. HEAR Now presents audio fiction programs that exemplify traditions of craftsmanship, as well as aesthetic and technological innovation.

The 2017 HEAR Now Festival will again be a gathering place where the work of master storytellers is celebrated and shared.

Audio drama, audiobooks, recorded, and live story-telling -- sketches, poetry, spoken word -- alongside academic papers, juried competitions, and presentations on the physics of sound, as well as performance workshops, will round out this intensive listening event for the 2017 Hear Now Festival.

The following schedule is still ’under construction’ and subject to updates prior to June 6, 2017.

Reading from What Stumped The Blue Jays
Lauri Jo has been reading stories out loud to anyone who would listen since she was 3 years old. Her mom has always said that from the moment she was born she has never shut her mouth, so she decided to make a living out of it. 
When she isn’t busy trying to organize the chaos of 2 children and 6 animals at home, Lauri Jo is busy producing material from The Huffington Post, Slate, and Playboy for SpokenLayer’s news podcast, SpokenEdition. She is also currently working on the audio books for the Saddles N’ Spells romance series by M.R. Polish.
