PodCastle seeks quality fiction. If you’re a writer with a speculative short story that you’d like to hear narrated by a performer, this is the place to submit. Short Fiction falls between about 2,000 and 6,000 words. Pays $100. Flash Fiction is short five-to-ten minute “bonus” pieces used between the weekly main episodes. These stories can be up to 1,000 words. Pays $20. PodCastle is the world’s first fantasy audio magazine. Each week they bring short stories across the spectrum of fantasy from leading authors and new discoveries. Like their sister podcasts, Escape Pod and Pseudopod, PodCastle is entirely free to listen and share.
NOTE: This is so cool. If you are into audio, give this a go. $100 is actually more than more literary journals pay for short fiction.
DOUBLE NOTE: Are you getting as tired as I am about the fussing and feuding within the publishing industry about electronic publishing? Gracious, you'd think there's a deadline when paper books will be illegal the way these people are carrying on.
