Saw this important message on the Modern Audio Drama yahoo group- thought I'd pass on the word! Great opportunity from the fine folks at Broken Sea Audio!
BrokenSea Audio Productions is seeking short works for our Halloween 2008 series.
In 2007 BrokenSea showcased some great audio in public domain and original works. We had Halloween poetry, full cast audio drama, readings of stories and other dark things. During October we go to Hell and back to deliver new content every day. So we need up to 100 items to podcast.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org subject: Halloween 2008 if you have:
1. An unpublished short story (up to 5000 words) that you would be
willing to either have read, or adapted into a single episode audio drama
then please contact us.
2. A published story that own the rights for audio publication (in other
words your publisher wont sue us for producing it)
3. Poetry of a Halloween or horror theme that meets the above
We are also interested in original audio drama scripts of up to 30 minutes performance time (longer scripts enquire first). No fan-fiction please.
Payment: BrokenSea Audio does not pay for audio scripts or the rights to produce your work.
We also do not pay our voice actors, producers, foley artists, composers, web and graphic design artists. The flip side is that we do not sell any audio either. We operate on a volunteer basis and all work is released free of charge under a Creative Commons License.
The benefits to authors are exposure to a new market, we include links to your website or other promotional site for your work and you get your name in a few thousand potential readers ears.
Please pass this on to any indviduals, forums or groups that may be interested. All enquiries and material to email@example.com
