We're opening up our chart-topping, internationally recognised podcast to guest writers. Got a great idea for a story you think our audience will love? Get in touch and send it over.

If accepted, we'll get our fantastic narration team to lend their voices, our editor will sprinkle some magic pixie dust on the track, and you could have your story heard by thousands of listeners each week.

Successful submissions will also be included in our ebook and print compilations.

Here's what you need to do:

  • Stories must be 2,000 (10% tolerance +/-)

  • Save stories in a Word document - Times New Roman font, size 12

  • Please include a 1-2 sentence log line for your story.

  • Ensure that your name and an email address are somewhere on the document

  • Stories must fit an upcoming theme

  • You must be the original creator of the story

  • We will consider entrants whose work has been entered and published elsewhere, however please ensure you state where and when on the document

  • You will be allowed to place one call-to-action for your own work at the end of the episode. Be sure to include this in your document.
