Please submit your short story using the form below.
Please submit your short story (2000 words or less) as a PDF/Word doc (with your 50 word biography) and (if possible) your recorded 8 to 10 minute mp3 for consideration. Editing, intros and outros, FX and music will be added by us. We will consider a story without a recording if we think we can work with an actor to record it.
If you make an error while recording, pause and start the sentence again – we can edit it out. Record in a quiet place without background noise. If you need to do something like turn a page, do it during a pause.
Copyright in your story remains with you. However we do ask if we can keep the audio version of your story online. Simultaneous submissions are allowed but please let us know if your work is published elsewhere.
We have had a very generous offer from a fellow podcaster Austin Malone to read your story if you have no access to technology or are unable to record an MP3 for any reason. Please let us know if you would like his help.
Austin Malone is a voice-actor who has narrated stories for Pseudopod, Podcastle, and The Melting Potcast. A native of New Orleans, he can frequently be found in the dark corners of nerdy, writing-themed bars. In the virtual world, he can be found at his website: sippinghemlocktea.com.
