Podfic

"Podfic: it's an audio recording of a fanfic, like an audiobook...Fans from all over put their voices out there so you can enjoy fanfic on the go or just in a different way." - PodAware Day 1 - Podfic 101/Why We Podfic

Unlike ebooks, Otter and Ferret doesn't have the ability to auto-provide podfics of entries. However, here is some information that may be helpful if you're an author or reader who's interested in podfic.

If you're an author and interested in podfic of your work, you can help encourage podfic of your work by explicitly granting permission on your fic's notes or your archive profiles. Some authors chose to only grant permission for certain fics (Limited Permission), while others grant permission for all of their work (Blanket Permission). Blanket permission, if you're comfortable granting it, is often the most useful kind of permission for podficcers. Blanket permission allows podficcers to begin work on a podfic immediately, and time is often a factor in fests, challenges, and exchanges.

"Blanket permission is a way for fan artists to let other fans know their comfort with others playing with their works. It's particularly helpful to podficcers when authors give blanket permission for anyone to podfic their works without having to ask first." -PodAware Day 2 Blanket Permission



If you'd like to make your work available for podficcing, after putting a statement on your archive profiles and/or making an announcement, you might want to add your name to this list of Harry Potter podfic-friendly authors (Dreamwidth | LiveJournal) compiled by [personal profile] fire_juggler. If you're interested in checking out a current list of podfic-friendly Harry Potter authors, [personal profile] fire_juggler has a master list posted at their journal.
