Untold Tales


Please note the 2024 CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS link below.

If you are a listener of UNTOLD TALES Anthologies and are also a writer, you could have your stories broadcast on one of our future podcasts.

We are also way looking for high-quality stories, and while we have focused mostly on science fiction genres, we have highlighted stories in a number of genres, including:

  • Hard SF
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Comedy
  • Satire
  • and even Romance

We are currently seeking short stories that are mainly science fiction, or SF subgenres, such as Hard-SF, Speculative fiction, Steampunk, SF-horror, SF- romance, Space opera, Dystopian, Time travel, First contact, technothrillers, YA, Military-SF, etc.) However, we plan on extending our genres in the near future to include  non-SF genres will be considered (such as Mystery, Horror, or Romance)

Since we have not yet monetized our broadcasts, we cannot yet provide monetary remuneration for stories that we use. However, if you are a new or published author and would like to have our listeners learn of your works, you are invited to submit your short stories for possible airing in the future.

We are converting short stories (~2000-5500 words) into audio which is a service that typically costs several hundred dollars to have a professional narrate, edit, and produce for authors to share and post on their channels, all for free. It takes us several hours do this work and all of our authors have found it to be an excellent and valuable service. Admittedly, it’s not for everybody. So if it doesn’t vibe with you, that is perfectly ok! Perhaps take a listen to some of our podcasts for a better understanding of what it is we are doing. 

If an author's story is accepted, they retain full rights, but Dreamspeaker Media, LLC will hold 'audio rights' until the story is broadcast ... or for two years, whichever is the least. (That is currently how long our broadcast schedule extends.)

If you would like your stories converted to audio format, at no cost, and aired to our listening audience, please click on the links below to review our submission guidelines and view a sample of the terms and agreements associated with permission to broadcast your works.
