The Word Count Episode Seventeen Submission Guidelines (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)
PROMPT: It happened so quickly I had no time to think, only react…
DEADLINE: I must receive your submission by MIDNIGHT (Eastern Time) Friday 26th August 2011
The work must be an original of yours. It could be a poem, short story, song—anything really as long as you write something based on the stated theme (It happened so quickly I had no time to think, only react…). Do NOT exceed ten minutes. As this is a podcast, I need to receive a file of YOU reading (singing or otherwise performing) your work. MP3 FORMAT, please attach your MP3 file to an e-mail. The e-mail should also contain the following:
- Your pen name
- Your bio
- Links to your websites
- Your Twitter name (if you have one)
- A photo I can use for the show notes
- Permission to use your recording in the podcast
- At the end of the recording, please add the following: “The is <YOUR NAME> author of <YOUR WORK(s)> and you’re listing to The Word Count Podcast”
Send your file to email@example.com by Friday the 26th of August. You can also e-mail me with questions before hand. I do reserve the right NOT to post your submission, but will communicate that to you should it be the case. I add the ‘Explicit’ tag to the ‘cast, so if your story uses adult themes or language that’s ok—but it should be necessary for the story.
