Dead Audio: Dark Tales of Fiction will open soon to submissions for its UPCOMING SPECIAL FLASH EPISODE
In order for your story to be considered it must be well written, compelling, and by all means DARK. I'm open to interpretation on just what dark is to a degree. Horror, dark fantasy, dark science fiction, dark noir, dark mystery, speculative, non-speculative, all are welcome. But the most prominent element MUST be a dark tone or resolution. But on the same note I don't particularly dig stories where everybody dies at the end, either.
Please read these instructions carefully. Your approximate word count should be between 400 and 1000 words, NO EXCEPTIONS. Send your story in standard manuscript format (double spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman font) as a .doc or .rtf attachment to email@example.com Please, NO .DOCX files. NO SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS, NO MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS, however, reprints are welcome as long as they've never been audiocasted before.
Much like the stories you'll be sending, the opening to submit will go by in a flash! Submissions open on Sunday, January 22nd and close midnight PST on Saturday, January 28th. That's one week, ladies and gentlemen! (7 days *Whispered*) But you certainly don't have to wait until then to write it, so get to writing and get those flash stories in when the window opens for its brief spell!
Until further notice, Dead Audio will be a non-paying market. However, I am considering the possibility of making a special "best of" audio anthology to sell as an audiobook down the line. So any stories accepted will also be considered for that as well.
