Scam alert: Audrie Stroud


We’ve become aware that this individual is contacting artists and authors claiming to be a “creative editor and sourcer” for Escape Artists. The email we’re aware of requested the recipient’s freelance rates, and offered a permanent, full time position.

We do not know who this individual is, and they are not acting in our name. We’re disgusted our name is being hijacked in such a manner, and our hearts go out to any creatives contacted.

If you’ve received a similar message from this person, or a similar sounding request, please get in touch.

This year has been quite the decade…) And all the while bringing you the best in free weekly audio fiction.

We got it done, but wow was it a busy year. Now that we’ve had a minute to catch our breath, we wanted to call out some of the fantastic highlights: (Continue Reading…)
