This is a place where unknown authors tell their stories. Each episode is a miniature audiobook where the words of an unknown author are taken off the page and into listeners' imaginations. We also sit down with the author to discuss their writing journey. At the end of the season, the audience will help determine a “winner” who will return at the season’s end to talk more about their journey, as a Hidden Scribe.

If you are familiar with the story then please enjoy the shifts we made in tone and atmosphere. If you haven't listened to this amazing story yet, please do so immediately. We talk with the creator, Sarah R. Werner, about building an audience, seizing the mantle of writer and are even given a glimpse into the mysteries of X.

jaimito sutuchi ,


I’m very pleased with this podcast. The interviewer is fantastic. Ultra thoughtful and fantastically curious. He pulls great details out of the authors. Harron Butt was especially intriguing. And I quite enjoyed both his writing and his personal tales of life in US vs Pakistan.



This trailer is great. I'm so excited to hear more. It cast quit a spell. Loved it
