celebrating web-active poets

Audio Chapbooks

“How do you like your poetry served?” is what we ask at Whale Sound Audio Chapbooks. Our theory is that poetry is like steak, and people like it served to them in different ways. Some prefer online text or online audio. Some prefer a printed book in their hands. Or just a PDF download. An e-book they can read on their e-reader. Some are fine with paying. Others prefer their poetry free. We publish each audio chapbook in multiple formats – current titles below.
