Small Fish Radio seeks radio plays

web site

The deadline is the stroke of midnight, September 15, 2014.

Our second annual Horror Show will be recorded LIVE  at Chicago Dramatists on October 26, 2014.

Vampires, Witches, Monsters, and Zombies welcome.

Please send your submissions to:

Please follow the guidelines listed below.

Radio Play categories by running time:
  • 6-10 Minute Radio Play (maximum 10 minutes)
  • Short Story and Poetry running times:
  • Short Story - no more than 5 minutes in length. 
  • Poetry - no more than 1-2 minutes in length.

Script Guidelines:

Five Actors or Less – This does not mean five characters or less, it simply means
your play 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.

Theme/Genre – Small Fish Radio Theatre and Thespinarium encourages imaginative plays that transport the listener. Whimsy, fantasy (other than Sci-Fi), fable, fairy tale, melodrama, mystery are among the types of radio plays we look for.

Short Stories and Poetry –
 We accept short stories and poetry in written form (PDF preferred).

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

We are not accepting produced radio plays.

MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS ARE FINE (as long as you follow the guidelines)!
