PodCastle is a short story podcast that specializes in the fantastic. We’re looking for short stories in all sub-genres of fantasy, from magical realism to urban fantasy to slipstream to high fantasy, and everything in between. We hope to publish fiction reflecting the full range of settings and tropes found in fantasy fiction. We’d particularly like to see more stories set outside America, and stories that feature characters who represent a range of backgrounds and ethnicities. Please see the detailed guidelines in the individual submission portals below before submitting.
