Cast of Wonders Submission ManagerCast of Wonders
YA
Podcasts
Deadline: Not listed
Length: max. 6,000 words
Payment: $.06/word for original fiction

As a young adult fiction podcast, we’re looking for stories that evoke a sense of wonder and have something unreal about them. We aim for a 12-17 age range: that means sophisticated, non-condescending stories with wide appeal, and without explicit sex, violence or pervasive obscene language. Think Harry Potter or The Hunger Games.

We prefer high fantasy — elves, dragons, secondary worlds, and magic — to the more cerebral forms of fantasy you find in adult markets.

We’re happy to read comedy, steampunk, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, superheroes and many other genres.
