Submission Guidelines


Short story submission are closed.

We have a backlog of high-quality stories we have purchased the rights to or are in the process of reviewing.
 
We accept a variety of short fiction, so any genre is acceptable.  While we are not an all-ages podcast, we will not accept stories which feature the following:  Rape, Stereotypes as comedy short-hand, or Creative Writing class exercises repurposed as 'Literary short fiction.'  If your story is not in good taste, it probably won't find a home here.
We accept works of up to 3,000 words, but 1,000 to 2,000 words is our preferred length. If you have a longer story that you think would be a good fit, please query first.
Send all submissions pasted in the body of an email. Don't send an attachment. Include 'SUBMISSION,' and the title of your story in the subject line of your email, and include a short biography, including other publishing credits, in the email message.
If you would like to read a story for the Way of the Buffalo podcast, please query. Let us know what kind of story you would like to read, and if you have done any narrating or acting before. Also, please let us know what kind of equipment you use to record.
The Way of the Buffalo pays a flat fee of US$10.00 for stories and recordings.  We purchase non-exclusive audio rights.

Send all stories, queries, and comments to: wayofthebuffalopodcast (at) gmail (dot) com. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
