During the month of September, PseudoPod is
looking for submissions to celebrate ARTEMIS RISING, a special month-long event across all four Escape Artists podcasts featuring stories by some of the best female authors in genre fiction.
For ARTEMIS RISING, PseudoPod is looking to fill the entire month with female-authored horror fiction. Payment will be $.06 per word for original fiction, and $100 for reprints. Original fiction is preferred.
Who Can Submit
Anyone who identifies as a woman, to whatever degree that they do. Nonbinary authors are also welcome and encouraged to submit stories.
As always, we at PseudoPod strongly encourage submissions from people of backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented or excluded from traditional horror fiction, including, but not limited to, people of color, LGBTQ authors, persons with disabilities,
members of religious minorities, and people from outside the United States. Our goal is to publish horror that reflects the diversity of the human race, so we strongly encourage submissions from these or any other underrepresented groups.
What to Submit
Send in your best horror fiction between 2,000 – 6,000 words.
You can send PseudoPod one submission for ARTEMIS RISING. If we have another story under consideration already in the general submissions queue, submission of an additional story for ARTEMIS RISING will not be considered a multiple submission. For ARTEMIS RISING we are asking that you do not send any simultaneous submissions.
Our goal is to have all responses sent out by the second week of November. If this changes due to the volume of submissions received, we’ll update you. While we’ll be accepting a limited number of stories for ARTEMIS RISING, all stories may be considered for filling the remainder of the PseudoPod calendar.
How to Submit
Please follow our usual submission guidelines on how to format your story, and submit through our special
ARTEMIS RISING Submittable portal.
Thanks, and we look forward to reading your stories!
