Upcoming Contract Changes

Starting in 2016, PodCastle will make some significant changes to the rights we buy from authors, most notably the purchase of electronic rights to post the text of stories to our website. This is to clear up some ambiguity surrounding the eligibility of stories first published in audio for major awards and Year’s Best anthologies. Since we have begun paying pro rates for original stories, we want to make sure our authors receive the same consideration for these honors as those published at text-based zines.

Please see our Submissions Guidelines for more information, including links to full sample contracts.
