This Saturday, October 17th from 7:15-8:15pm at the Make Out Room, KALW and The Litography Project are teaming up to host Off The Air- a free night of storytelling as part of Litquake's annual San Francisco Lit Crawl.
This Thursday, members of the esteemed San Francisco Writers’ Grotto will stand up and read their worst writing, in front of an audience. It’s part of the annual Litquake Festival, and it’s called "Regreturature." KALW’s Martina Castro went to last year’s show and did some thinking about her own creative process.

The Hear Here mobile story tunnel is coming to Hear Here Live this Saturday at 5pm at Public Works in the Mission. The story tunnel features the photos of people who have contributed their story to the Hear Here project, along with a special link to their audio stories. Just a simple swipe of a smartphone will let you listen on the spot to the diverse and touching stories Hear Here has collected and produced so far. Think of it like an art gallery for sound!
