Submissions update: One-Minute Weird Tales

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Weird Tales’s traditional story submissions are going to remain closed until Memorial Day — but we ARE now publicly opening submissions for our new flash-narrative format: One-Minute Weird Tales! Take a look at this video clip, which has been on our home page for a while, and you’ll get the idea:

These are sharp little micro-stories of 20 to 150 words, presented in a quick sequence of brief one-screen chunks — sort of a funky hybrid of a movie trailer, a Zen koan, and an Adult Swim between-show bumper. They don’t necessarily have to be funny — but they DO have to be immediately grabbing and viciously memorable. And, of course, weird.

Flat payment of $25 for video/online publishing rights. Send your scripts — that is, your stories demarcated with individual screen breaks — within the body of email to weirdtales@gmail.com.
