A Word In Your Ear is currently accepting submissions for Story Fridays. Please see the Guidelines below for full details.
We look forward to reading your work!
Story Friday Online:
After the success of our three part Dark Clouds Silver Linings we’ve got a new theme for June – A Breath of Fresh Air. The stories will go live on Youtube Friday 5th June. Deadline for submissions is Monday 25th May.
These stories will be read by professional actors, and the films will be posted on Youtube. You can write about what is happening now – or something completely different, up to you. We will choose a mixed selection of stories that will form a balanced ‘evening’ if audiences watch the stories together.
Submissions for Story Friday Online are slightly different from normal:
– Stories are shorter: only 1,000 words or fewer
– All stories will be read by actors
Please note: all submissions are always acknowledged. If you don’t get an acknowledgement, your story might not have arrived. Please email clare.reddaway @ btinternet.com to double check. Thank you.
Remember that the stories need to be read out loud, and they need to capture and hold the attention of a live audience – be careful of multiple voices, long descriptions and complicated plots.
Please do not resubmit a story that has already been considered by Story Fridays.
Story Fridays is currently an unpaid opportunity.
Submissions should be sent to A Word In Your Ear via our contact form. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Please can you include the word count when you submit your story.
That’s it! Thank you!
