Pseudopod.org, an online audio magazine that narrates works of dark horror and weird fiction, has announced a call for submissions inviting women writers to submit horror fiction for Artemis Rising 4.
During the entire month of September, Pseudopod will celebrate ARTEMIS RISING, an extraordinary month-long event across all three Escape Artists’ podcasts presenting stories by the most talented female authors in genre fiction.
Escape Artists’ podcasts include Pseudopod.org (horror); Podcastle.org (fantasy fiction); and EscapePod.org (science fiction).
Who can submit? Anyone who classifies themselves as a woman, to whatever distinction. Non-binary authors are also invited and urged to submit stories. The editor highly encourages stories from writers of diverse backgrounds who have been historically underrepresented or rejected from traditional horror fiction.
Word length: 2K-6K words per story.
Payment: 6 cents/word (considered pro-rates for this genre) for original, unpublished stories; or $100 for reprints.
Reading period closes September 30, 2017.
