Stereo Stories

We publish well-written, evocative, concise stories. Short memoirs. Non-fiction. Up to  800 words. The shorter the better.

You’re welcome to write about all sorts of songs, including songs that are already here on the site. You can send us a story or you can pitch us an idea, just a few sentences. Either way, we’ll get back to you. Please include song title, a place and a time at the top of the story and, if possible, a link to a good film clip of the song.

You can send your story or your idea to us via our Contact page or via email editor Vin Maskell at Stereo Stories. We occasionally run poems about songs. See our poetry collection for examples. More specific writing guidelines are in our April 2020 post, https://www.stereostories.com/towards-500-stories/.
