fourthirtythree is a new audio magazine.
We’ll be broadcasting and podcasting short stories of around five minutes (up to 1,000 words), written and read by some of the best contemporary writers.
We’re looking for edgy, engaging stories about modern life - stories which work well when read aloud.
If you’d like to submit, or join our mailing list, or have any questions, or anything else really, just email us:
And here’s our first batch of stories for you to listen to.
You can subscribe to our podcast here (iTunes).
NICHOLAS HOGG - PICNIC
Maybe you’ve wondered why we’re in the middle of a decade-long slog of a war, and maybe you’ve read the newspaper or that wikileaks database and felt like you wanted a bit more for the senses. This one will help fill in the gaps. A woman goes missing in Afghanistan, and her captors propose a meal.
EMER O’TOOLE - AQUAMARINE
There are times when a place is just off, and there are moods that not even an intense redecoration project can lift. Fresh from a breakup, a woman grasps the joys of living alone and the terrors of a brand new colour.
