Note: Apologies for the short window, I only stumbled across this one just now

I’m delighted to launch an exciting new project in collaboration with the fantastic Alternative Stories & Fake Realities podcast:

GHOSTLORE: An Audio Fiction Anthology

And we’re now open to flash fiction submissions!

Ghostlore is a genre of folklore concerning ghosts, and I can’t wait to read creative responses to this. The anthology will form part of Alternative Stories & Fake Realities’ Season 6, in Spring 2022, and will link to a folklore discussion panel on a similar theme.

Deadline: February 1st, 2022
Payment: $0.08 per word USD for original fiction, $100 flat rate for reprints over 1,500 words, and $20 flat rate for flash fiction reprints (stories below 1,500 words).
Theme: Fun speculative cat stories

CatsCast is looking for fun speculative cat stories! A CatsCast story should leave cat-loving listeners a little happier after listening than they were before.

Specifically, we’re looking for speculative fiction stories about cats. “Cats” in this context are, well, cats — but since this is a speculative fiction podcast, they don’t have to be exactly the same species as the housecats we have here on Earth. The stories should have happy, or at least hopeful, endings for all featured cats. Humor is strongly encouraged but not required.

Some stories we love:

Ongoing Submissions: Dark Nowhere

Payment: $10
Theme: Hard-hitting in a tasteful way, preferably with a supernatural angle.

DarkNowhere.com is a horror genre news site launching mid-February (mind our dust!). We are currently seeking authors to fill two aspects of the site: Horror related news, blogs, reviews, and editorials (Think Bloody Disgusting and Dread Central), and Horror fiction.

Horror related news pieces are currently byline only. Our publisher has deep experience within the world of entertainment journalism and we expect these positions to lead to interview opportunities, advanced screeners, and various media access in the short term.

What we are most excited to bring to this space is semi-weekly fiction. We are paying $10 per story for publication rights on the site as well as production on our planned bi-weekly podcast.

We are looking for horror that is hard hitting in a tasteful way. Preference is given to pieces with a supernatural angle, but we can appreciate a good psychological scare too. Gore is okay as long as it isn’t the focus of your story. No explicit sex, rape, or anything of a pornographic nature.

Fiction submissions can be sent in any format.

Ideal length is 1,000 – 10,000 Words.

Reprints and simultaneous submissions are not accepted

The magazine is looking for 3-Months exclusivity and the ability to leave the story online after that as well as include it in their podcast, after the 3 months of online exclusivity, rights return to the author.
