|Mission Statement :
||Atlantic Public Media administers Transom.org. APM is a non-profit organization based in Woods Hole, Massachusetts which has as its mission "to serve public broadcasting through training and mentorship, and through support for creative and experimental approaches to program production and distribution." How It Works Transom.org is an experiment in channeling new work and voices to public radio through the Internet, for discussing that work, and encouraging more. We've designed Transom.org as a performance space, an open editorial session, an audition stage, a library, and a hangout. Our purpose is to create a worthy Internet site and make public radio better. Performance Space - Obvious enough. People submit work to be featured on the site. We choose the work we like best. Audiences drop by to listen to it. Open Editorial Session - Special Guests are invited to comment on the work. Bulletin Boards encourage conversations between them, the producers, and everyone else. Audition Stage - Work appearing on Transom.org will be auditioned by representatives of radio programs and networks here and abroad. They are scouting for talent, new work and ideas. We have agreements with most of these programs to support Transom.org by mentioning it on the air. If you're interested in getting on the radio, a good way to do it would be to create your best possible thing, and have it chosen to be showcased here. A Library - Besides the audio work which we'll be archiving, we're offering other resources and links for people interested in radio production. Check the "Tools" section. A Hangout - The bulletin boards give you a chance to chat with other producers, contribute your ideas, make suggestions for the site, ask questions....hang out.
