The podcaster’s extra information can be anything you want as long as it is not too long (<= 30 sec). It shouldn’t sound like an ad. For example you could use this section to promote your website, new book, or even your own podcast but don’t use this space to promote accounting software or a weight loss program.

Available stories.
Stories that have been published after June 1,  2009 and have not already been published on the podcast page are fair game.

We DO NOT accept podcasts that are not of published stories on Every Day Fiction.

There is NO COMPENSATION for podcasts at this time. You will not be paid for a podcast. Please don’t ask.

File format
We only accept MP3 files.

Submission Process
All podcasts must be submitted through our online form–we cannot accept podcasts via email or snail mail.

Our target response time is 10 days, and we will do our best to give you an acceptance or refusal within that time period, or at least provide an update if our decision is delayed.
