Sketches by Zod: The Wedding is an audio novella told from twelve perspectives. Each of the twelve narrators has a unique voice, tone and style. Each relates her experiences at a wedding. Each gets herself into quite a bit of tomfoolery. And we, the listeners, try to piece it all together. 

It’s written like a book, performed like a monologue, and released like a podcast. 

Literary. Madcap. Theatrical.

Zod helps us!

Theater-goers, stargazers, tea drinkers, story enthusiasts, and anyone who’d catch a Dickens reference…pull up an airpod and join the party!

Depending on who’s narrating, the story is zany, dark, poetic, wordy, peculiar, buck-wild, uncomfortable, ridiculous, exhausting, philosophical, confusing, tragic, and always over-the-top (always so way over-the-top, ya’ll.)

Jacqlyn Phillips is an English teacher based in North Carolina. She’s been writing and performing her whole life. The Wedding is her first audio fiction romp.

Back in 2015, Jacqlyn started writing The Wedding as an experiment in storytelling: how to write fiction for the Internet? Fiction that was fractured? Rabidly perspectival? The likes of which would put social media to shame?

The Zodiac seemed like a great starting point for such a venture, so she ran with it and ended up with a story told twelve ways.

Chapter One is fully available. 

Chapter Two begins releasing Fall 2020.
