Storyfeather started as a challenge for its creator, Nila Patel; Write an original short story every week. And that she did. In the five years since she has amassed over two-hundred stories across multiple genres. Each written story is accompanied by custom artwork giving visual aid and guidance to the story you’ll read.
Now, you may be saying, “I thought you were referring a podcast?” That I am.
With a launch in late 2017, Nila has begun to convert her written stories to podcast episodes and have thus far published 31 episodes with more to surely come.
I must admit that I stockpile episodes for the days that I work from home. This way, I can sit at the keyboard and not type anything for a longer period of time without anyone asking me what I am doing.
Smooth, soothing, relaxed, and engrossing. These are words that immediately come to mind when I think about Storyfeather podcast. Nila starts the episode with a hypnotic jazzy beat and a story hook that pulls you into her story as she narrates you through the worlds she has created using music to move you along and voice work to add a needed touch to a scene. Not too much and not too little.
For those that love reading short stories, Storyfeather is for you. For those that love listening to short stories, Storyfeather is for you. And if you like doing both, then, Storyfeather is definitely for you. Each episode is a new story and world to explore. No matter the path you choose, she has many stories to tell.
