What Is SlagDrop?
Slagdrop is a lot of things. Slagdrop is a writers’ collaborative, a place where stories meet music. A place where you can support local writers, musicians and artists by reading stories, sharing with your friends, and ultimately attending our shows.
If you haven’t gathered already, we’re a little obsessed with literature. We’ve foregone corporate jobs with 401ks and health benefits to follow a passion, no matter where it may lead us. We write -a lot- and want to share our stories with the world.
But we want to share these stories in unique ways. We’ve enlisted the help of musicians and artists to bring added excitement to our storytelling. We want you -The Reader- to have access to these stories, no matter where you are in the world and no matter what device you are using.
Not only can you read the stories, you can also listen to the recorded audio version. Stream the story via SoundCloud as you read along -from your phone, tablet or computer- then download the whole package (PDF + MP3 + Original Artwork) in a nifty little .zip file. Take that MP3 on the road, listen to it while you workout, shower, or wherever you want.
And then there are the shows. With your help and support, we want to perform everything you read and hear LIVE, LOUD and IN-YOUR-FACE at your local venue.
Literature is exciting. Storytelling rocks.
We want to change the literary world -Hell, we want to change the WORLD- and we want to do it through storytelling, the ORIGINAL social media.
Help us make this a reality. Donate, and we will put your money to good use. Every dollar donated goes right back into this project and helps us build better website functionality, put on LIVE SHOWS and expand our reach.
If you can’t donate, we understand (Trust us, we’re REALLY poor). Help us by spreading the word! Use Facebook and Twitter (@slagdrop) to tell all of your friends. Tell your coworkers, your family members, your baby-sitters and that dude who walks your dog. Tell the car mechanic, tell your financial planner, tell your grandma.
Come to our live shows! Bring all of your friends, everyone you know. Come rock out with us. Trust us, it will be exciting and like nothing you have ever heard. Even if you don’t like to read, you will love the excitement and the passion of a live show. It won’t be just a monotone, boring reading, it will be a kick-ass party with writers, musicians, artists and booze.
We can’t do this without you. So go read the stories. Stream them. Download them. Donate to help pay for webhosting, microphones, venue rental fees and all the stuff that costs money. Tell your friends and come to our shows. We’ve said all of this before, and we may say it again.
Long live literature, viva short stories,
