If you do not have access to a digital recording device, such as a Zoom Recorder, (not to be confused with the Zoom Video Meetings app) a good recording can be made on a smart phone using an app. We recommend "Voice Record Pro" available from the Apple App Store. The Android version is available on Google play.

One of the most attractive features of this app is the ability to customize the quality of your recordings. You will be prompted to do this once you press record. Please always use the "High" quality preset. This app is free.

How to Send the Recording
Choose "Send By Email"
There are a number of ways of forwarding the recording to Writers Radio directly from within the app. We recommend you use Send By Email with the Password Protected Link.
Here are the steps involved:
• Find your recording on the Voice Recorder Pro main screen. Tap on it.
• In the following screen, choose “Send by Email”, then choose “Audio"
• When the white “Send by Email" pop-up window appears, choose “Password Protected Link”. Wait for processing.
• The ”Link" option will automatically upload the recording to a secure server, protect it with a random password and then present you with an email that has the link and password.
Send that email to Writers Radio using this email address:
