Writers speak up to campion online audio networking

Past News Releases


Literary talent is set to go vocal this summer with the launch of new social networking site, a revolution for both the Arts community and online interaction. JotSpeak champions literature and centres around Spoken Word audio, a market surprisingly neglected in Generation Y’s networking boom. Finally, a virtual spotlight is beamed into this darkened corner of the Arts, and words have never shined so bright.

Let’s face it, reading online for sustained periods of time isn’t the most enjoyable activity, and for too long truly dynamic networking has catered only to musicians, visual artists, and amateur film makers, all dedicated to developing and showcasing their art forms. Networking sites specifically targeted to the literary community have been largely one dimensional and unimaginatively text orientated, until now. With new and unprecedented features, takes the literature world into a whole new dawn.

JotSpeak gets writers to put their pen where their mouth is and join the 21st century.

Members of this new online community have a host of features available, including being able to record directly onto the site and upload unlimited audio content into their accounts. These ‘Jots’ can then be classified into genres ranging from crime fiction and poetry, to general musings, politics and mainstream rants and raves. Content can be subscribed to and followed by other members, and once users contribute to the community they have the option of monetising their content. A first in online networking of this nature.

JotSpeak allows writers an instant source of revenue direct from their supporters, whilst charities are set to gain massively from celebrity ‘Jots’ and donations.

Along with all the expected features of social networking sites, such as status updates linked into Twitter or Facebook, mobile phone integration, chat and forums, JotSpeak offers a 24hr loop of randomly selected audio taken from user accounts. Known as JotSpeak Radio, or ‘JSR’ to the cooler kids, this is a continuous stream of fresh and creative talent and musings, available to anyone and everyone who wants to listen.

JotSpeak is more than just an audio alternative to Twitter or Facebook. For the media, entertainment and publishing communities it’s a direct link to both established and fresh talent.

Launched late last week, for writers will also prove a vast resource of information on competitions and events, with the aim of getting monthly top-voted audio national print space and coverage.    In a direct affront to the other Arts successfully thriving on the web and armed with the tagline ‘Inspired Audio Networking’, JotSpeak is determined to put literature on the map and is definitely the new site to watch.
