The newly-launched small press imprint of Hippocampus Magazine is now accepting submissions for AIR: A Collection of Radio-Inspired Stories. The anthology, scheduled for publication in 2018, will pay tribute to decades of broadcast radio leading up to the pre-digital age.
The editors are seeking behind-the-scene stories or firsthand accounts about small town radio stations, from personal stories by extreme radio fans, to outlandish but true tales from shock jocks, program directors, record reps, concert promoters, and so on. Stories will need fascinating characters, a well-established sense of place, along with progressive action and a distinct narrative arc.
When completed AIR: A Collection of Radio-Inspired Stories will contain a medley of eras, settings, styles, motifs, and voices to bring readers amusing, genuine, and exciting true stories about the heydey of radio broadcast.
Both established and emerging writers are encouraged to submit their stories. The editors will work with writers to improve their stories, if accepted.
Word length: up to 6500 words per story.
Payment: $50 per story, plus two contributor’s print copies.
Reading period ends February 15, 2017. Submit your story at the magazine’s Submittable page.
