Do we have somewhere to put dramatic readings of short stories? I was thinking of something like the one-act-play collections, but with short stories instead.

So, if someone fancied BCing/editing a DR of a single Sherlock Holmes story or a Saki story, for example, these could be brought together, just like our poetry, short story, non-fiction, and insomnia collections.

I assume it could stand alone, but that would be up to a admin to say.

Considering the work involved, I think it might take a long, long time to gather enough DR short stories to make a collection.

I think they could stand alone. Of course if you are interested in a collection of them that would be fine too.

Thanks, Tricia; I'd forgotten about them. I actually read in some of the DRs myself.

I have not had any requests to start a third collection.

Thanks, Todd
