I performed and mixed the story Tattooed Mother by Annie Drum for the short story memoir podcast, Memoria.

Project Date: Dec 2017
Client: Memoria
Format: Podcast
Role: Sound editor, Sound designer
Categories: Podcast, Sound editing, Sound design


This piece is about the passing of my mother. I wrote it very quickly, with few changes. The story flowed out as if it were always waiting to be told.

I write short stories and poetry and am working on a novel-length manuscript. In 2016 my collection of short stories, ‘Like Trees’, was published by Pomonal Publishing.

You can purchase Annie’s book, ‘Like Trees’,  here.
