Call for submissions: Halloween flash
« on: February 18, 2008, 07:30:06 PM »
PodCastle is planning a Halloween treat for the month of October. Already, we've got a couple stories lined up that are spooky, funny, or both, dealing with traditional hallow's eve themes likes ghosts and vampires. Don't worry, we're not stealing Pseudopod's thunder -- these stories feel more fantasy than horror, at least to us -- though we may borrow a few spine-tingling chills from our sister horror podcast, just for October.

PodCastle would like to flash up October's bewitching lineup with some short-shorts of 2,000 words and under. So feel free to send us what you've got that you think would fit our theme.

We're not looking for blood and gore, although we don't object to some. We're looking for stories that can loosely fit into a Halloween theme. Ghosts and zombies and trick-or-treaters count, whatever they're up to.

Our submission address is submit@podcastle.org. You can find our general guidelines at http://podcastle.org. We pay $20 for flash length fiction.

Feel free to repost this message.

What is your deadline?
Walking is the process of controlled stumbling.
