Audible Creates $5 Million Fund for Emerging Playwrights – The New York Times

So pleased to see my friends at Audible making an investment in short drama for the ears and mind.

Audible, the digital audiobook giant, announced Tuesday that it would create a $5 million fund to commission new works from emerging playwrights — not for the stage, but for people’s headphones and speakers.

As audio fiction seems to be having a moment, in the realm of podcasts, Audible plans to draw from the vast pool of young writers to create one- or two-person plays. They will be available beginning late this year, the company said.
