Redshift Season 2 Story Submissions

The Kickstarter campaign for our second season is live now, and doing well (not that we couldn’t do better, wink wink). Part of what made our first season so successful was the great slate of stories we received from authors at all levels of experience, profile and status. So of course we are excited to once again open up for story submissions for Season 2. Some guidelines:

  • Submissions should be in either prose or radio script format. Prose format should be around 8000-9000 words. If the story is dialog heavy, it can be somewhat shorter, but it is easier to cut for time then create “filler”. Radio Script format should be 25-30 pages in length.
  • Science Fiction or Weird Fiction (Lovecraft-esque) plotlines only. If it sounds like it would work on Twilight Zone, then send it over. Horror/suspense with science fiction trappings are also acceptable. Fantasy/sword-and-sorcery will likely not be accepted.
  • Multiple characters, preferably different genders/voices, are encouraged.
  • Storylines can be mature in nature, but must be suitable for all ages. If it can’t be played in public in front of children, please do not submit. The children in question don’t necessarily have to understand or like the story, just keep the swears to a minimum.
  • If accepted, you will be paid for the license to produce an audio drama from your work. We (Fancy Pants Gangsters) will retain rights to the production in accordance with Creative Commons licensing. All other rights will remain with the author.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please send your script in Word or OpenOffice format to Deadline for Season 2 will be November 30th, 2015.
