Manawaker Studio Flash Fiction Podcast

Literary Magazine

Flash Fiction


Each week (from February thru November) we deliver to your podcast feed a short-short story (almost never more than ten minutes). The stories range widely in theme and style. Some are more like audiobooks, some more like radio plays or found-recordings.

How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    No cover letter advice

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    The preference is for rtf files and standard manuscript format, but doc, docx, pdf, or even just pasted into the body of the e-mail are all fine too. And, you won’t be rejected just because your format isn’t perfect. Whatever form you are already storing the stories in, is probably okay for us. As long as we can get it open, we’ll read it. If we can’t get it open, we’ll let you know. An exception to this: (in red because it’s a new and important addition to these guidelines) We will no longer accept any submissions in the form of links to other sites or services. This means: No medium drafts or google docs, etc.

  • Author's rights

    If your work is accepted, you will grant Manawaker Studio the right to edit and produce the work non-exclusively as part of the weekly podcast (which is posted on the Manawaker website, iTunes podcast store, Google Music, Spotify, and several other aggregators which pull content from those services.) and in an audiobook collection, which may remain ‘in print’ indefinitely. The work or parts of it may also be used for promotional purposes by Manawaker Studio. At no point will Manawaker studio require any sort of exclusive rights to any story, and the original creator will retain all copyrights. If you are a translator submitting a translation of another author’s story, please include a copy of the contract showing that you have the rights to translate and distribute the other author’s work.

  • Additional info

    All genres will be considered, but the story must remain accessible to all ages, which mostly means no erotica or gore-horror. The editor has a particular love for sci-fi stories, so those may get slightly stronger consideration. We also prefer stories that have a plot. Vignettes are great, and necessarily make up a large part of what we accept at this length requirement, but having a proper beginning, middle, and end will score extra points. Previously published work is okay, as long as you let us know where it was published previously, so we can credit them in the podcast. Compensation for the use of an accepted work will be a token payment of one cent per word (half for reprints) with a minimum payment of three dollars (USD) and a max of ten dollars. There is no deadline for submissions, as this is an ongoing project.
