The Way of The Buffalo podcast accepts a variety of short fiction. Any genre is acceptable. We take stories of up to 3,000 words, but prefer a thousand to fifteen hundred words.
Works that lend themselves to spoken reading are better, and we like stories that have very strongly defined settings. We recommend you read the story aloud to yourself before you send it in. We reserve the right to make edits to the story for the sake of audio production.
The Way of the Buffalo podcast pays a flat fee of $10.00 per accepted story. Payments are made via paypal or check. We buy non-exclusive audio rights, as well as the right to sample the story in electronic format for marketing purposes. We may also include the story on a promotional compact disk.
We only accept stories via email. We do not accept attachments. Any story sent as an attachment will be deleted unread. Please put the name of your story in the subject line of your email. Include the word count and genre of your story, and a brief biography of yourself in your cover letter.
All queries and submissions will be responded to within three months. If you do not receive a response by then, please query.
