Together with my close friends Rob Gordon and Rob Sherman, I co-founded the One Hour Stories Podcast in 2013. We're currently on hiatus, but we have every intention of resurrecting it when we can make it work again.
One Hour Stories is an extremely simple formula. A small group of people get together, a title or a theme is picked, and everybody writes for one hour exactly, on that theme. No editing or deleting is allowed. When the hour is finished, each person must read out their story, without hesitation, and without any verbal correction.
On the podcast we read out stories out and discuss them, often with guest writers. Have a listen, and then get to writing your own One Hour Stories.
