Thank you for your interest in submitting your work to be produced for Night Terrors Podcast. We are a horror/creepy narration podcast looking to create episodes showcasing a new writer each episode. Our episodes run between 20 and 40 minutes, so we’re looking for 2000 to 4000 word submissions. Since this new series is based around showcasing authors, we strongly encourage multiple stories that add up to around the word count, but if you believe you have a single story that is compelling enough, please do not hesitate to send it along. All submissions should be sent to [email protected] with the Subject reading NTP Submission.
What we’re looking for:
Stories that are ready to be narrated. Stories that are easily narrated by one person. Stories with a first person narrator. Stories that may have been published online but have no (or very limited audio versions) Please note if there are other audio versions online. Scare us, terrify us, make us sleep with the lights on. We simply want to be a vessel to promote strong writers.
What we don’t want:
Graphic depictions of sexual assault, hate speech, child molestation. Cursing is fine but derogatory slurs just ain’t it.
The terms of accepted submissions are as follows:
We will release one produced track of all accepted stories on our podcast feeds, and individual videos of each story on our Youtube. The author will be attributed in the title and show notes of all publications along with any links they would like to be associated with. We will also promote the episode with the author’s name on all of our social media, and encourage the author to do the same.
