Just a note to reflect that we’re now closed for submissions for our Artemis Rising event, as well as general submissions.

We will reopen for general submissions in January.

Call for Submissions: ARTEMIS RISING

UPDATE: Submissions for this event are now CLOSED. Thanks, all.

PodCastle is looking for submissions between now and December 5 to celebrate ARTEMIS RISING, a special month-long event across all three Escape Artists podcasts featuring stories by some of the best female authors in genre fiction.

For ARTEMIS RISING, PodCastle is looking to fill the entire month with original female-authored fantasy fiction. Payment will be $.06 per word.

Who Can Submit

If you identify as a woman, we’d love to see your story.

As always, we at PodCastle strongly encourage submissions from people of backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented or excluded from traditional fantasy fiction, including, but not limited to, people of color, LGBTQ or non-binary gender people, persons with disabilities, members of religious minorities, and people from outside the United States.  Our goal is to publish fantasy that reflects the diversity of the human race, so we strongly encourage submissions from these or any other underrepresented groups.

What to Submit

Send in your best fantasy fiction between approximately 2,000 – 6,000 words. We have a little bit of flexibility here, but keep in mind stories much more than 6,000 words will be a difficult sell for us.

While PodCastle typically features reprints, we’re on the lookout for original stories for ARTEMIS RISING. Please do not send reprints. Actually, do send them – just not for ARTEMIS RISING.

You can send us one submission for ARTEMIS RISING. If we have another story under consideration already (such as a reprint), we’d be happy to consider an additional story for ARTEMIS RISING.

As usual, we do accept simultaneous submissions.

Our goal is to have responses sent out before Christmas Day. If this changes due to the volume of submissions received, we’ll update you.

How to Submit

Email your story to us at submit (at) podcastle.org with the subject headline: ARTEMIS RISING SUBMISSION: [Story Title]. Please follow our usual submission guidelines on how to format your story.

Thanks, and we look forward to reading your stories!

Best,

Anna Schwind and Dave Thompson

Call for Submissions: Science Fantasy!

Hey everyone! As we mentioned at the beginning of the year, PodCastle is looking to do a science fantasy block of stories later on this year.

What does science fantasy mean to us? Here are some basic ideas.

Dragons in space! Magic on a dying earth! Fantastical forests on the moon! Sorcerers on spaceships!

And, you know, everything in between.

BUT ABSOLUTELY NO MIDICHLORIANS!!!

Send them to us at submit@podcastle.org as you normally would, but mark the title of your submission “SF Submission: Story Title”. Aside from that, follow our standard guidelines on how to submit.

Thanks, and looking forward to reading them!
