It's easy. Just paste your story into the body of an email.
Send it to email@example.com.
There's basically one requirement: your story must include ghosts or the supernatural.
What we are looking for:
Any fiction story that includes ghosts or the supernatural.
Any genre is ok as long as your story includes ghosts or the supernatural.
Reprints are ok as long as your story includes ghosts or the supernatural.
Did I mention that I ONLY read stories on the podcast that include ghosts or the supernatural? So please don't send me stories that don't have ghosts or the supernatural.
Simultaneous submissions are ok, just let me know if your story was selected by another outlet.
The preferred word count is 1000 to 3000 words, but I'l consider stories outside that word count.
There is no payment for stories that are selected. I would like to pay. I really would. And maybe someday...but right now, if your story is read on the podcast, you get my undying appreciation for sharing your story and the accolades from the kaidankai listeners.
Now accepting original, unpublished stories with a haunted house theme to be read during August. Selected stories will win a cash prize.
August is special for the Kaidankai. The podcast started in August 2021 as 100 days, 100 stories. In 2022, we created Unpleasantville, daily stories about the inhabitants of our fictional town.
This year, I'll read four stories that will give you goosebumps and put a little chill in the hot August summer.
Cash prizes (amount TBD) will be given to the selected stories.
Submit your original story by email. No reprints, please.: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subject line: contest-name-title
Send your story by July 15th as a word file. Please do not include any identifying information in the word file.
Thanks! Looking forward to reading your work.
