Taking Submissions: Escape Pod 22-23 Window

Deadline: May 31st, 2023
Payment: USD $0.08 per word for original fiction. USD $100 per story for reprint fiction.
Theme: Science Fiction
Note: Reprints Welcome

Escape Pod is a science fiction market. We are fairly flexible on what counts as science (superheroes! steampunk! space opera! time travel!) and are interested in exploring the range of the genre. We want stories that center science, technology, future projections, and/or alternate history, and how any or all of these things impact individuals and society.

Escape Pod leans in the direction of escapism, hopepunk and optimism rather than grimdark and gloom. We love to see funny stories, which can include dark humor that doesn’t punch down, and satire that isn’t painfully bleak. Remember that the failure mode of irony is sincerity, so if you’re mocking something, be sure you’re hitting the right target.

Taking Submissions: Tales From The Radiator

Deadline: September 30th, 2022
Payment: $5
Theme: Stories for a podcast that must have some elements of sci-fi/fantasy/magical realism

About

Tales From The Radiator is an anthology style speculative fiction podcast that strives to feature new writers and actors.

What to submit

We’ll take stories up to 2000 words. They must have some elements of sci-fi/fantasy/magical realism, but other than that, we have no restriction for you. Go nuts! Simultaneous/multiple submissions are okay, but please notify us immediately if the story was accepted elsewhere. We’re not picky about format, but please use Times New Roman 12 pt. font double spaced, as it’s easiest to read. Keep in mind this is a podcast, so we’re looking for stories that lend themselves well to audio and will give the voice actor a lot to work with. We read submissions anonymously, so please avoid putting any identifying information on the manuscript. This is only to prevent potential bias in our readers; if your story is selected, it will be published under whatever name you choose.
