Small Fish Radio Theatre Annual Horror Show

Call for Submissions!


2017 Horror Show Submission


Yes my dears, we're looking for HORROR SUBMISSIONS. If you would be so kind as to bring out your dead,

or your undead, whatever the case may be. Our annual horror show will be recorded LIVE on October 21st.

Stories, plays, poetry, songs ... DEADLINE September 15th at the stroke of midnight. Submission link below.


Submission Guidelines:


Submissions must be specific to the Horror genre.

Gothic, Supernatural, Non-Supernatural - whatever invokes FEAR and DREAD!




Short Plays - No more than 10 minutes in length.

Short stories - No more than 5 minutes in length.

Poetry - No more than 2 minutes in length.


Five Actors or Less – This does not mean five characters or less, it simply means
your short play, story, or poem must be able to be performed by a maximum of five actors.


NO STAGE DIRECTIONS – While this may seem obvious given our
“radio” format, it is important to remember that your play is
conveyed through the dialogue, music, and sound effects.


Please do not submit recorded radio plays, stories or music.

We are not accepting produced radio plays.


Multiple submissions are acceptable, as long as you follow the guidelines listed above.


Additional playwright submissions resources may be found at http://playsubmissionshelper.com/blog.
