Filling out the ‘Pod’ trilogy of great places to send submissions, this week we’ll be looking at Podcastle. This is a fantasy market, and one that I am very eager to send things to, since Fantasy is sort of what my main focus is. You know, with that fantasy series I’ve been working on for a year and a half now. For your convenience, this is the sister site to Pseudo Pod and Escape Pod.
Right now they’re reading for a theme, called Dirty Jobs. Here’s what they have to say about it on their website-
Every society has them: the hidden jobs that no one knows about, the hard jobs that no one glamorizes, the secret jobs that everyone pretends do not exist.
Every society has them. Every society needs them. Even a society inhabited by magic, myth, and monsters.
Tell me that doesn’t just shoot off ideas in your head.
Word Count- Same as Pseudo Pod, they want either longer pieces around 2,000 words, or flash fiction at around 500 to 1,000.
Sub Date- Jan 15 to March 15
Wait Time- Unspecified.
