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


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.

Who can submit

Anyone! Though we give priority to previously unpublished authors.

Where to submit

When to Submit

We are open to submissions until September 30, or until we reach 100 submissions. Whichever comes first! We hope to get back to you within three months. If you don’t hear back from us by then, feel free to query.


As an indie company we can’t offer much, but we believe it’s better to get paid a little rather than nothing at all. So we offer a token payment of $5 per story. We hope to one day offer professional rates.


Email [email protected]. Please so not submit stories to this address.
