While many of the stories presented in the Ye Olde Terror Inn podcast will be written by us, we also encourage other writers to submit their stories for consideration for episode production. Writers will retain copyright to their original work(s) and will sign a permission form allowing their work(s) to be produced as part of the Ye Olde Terror Inn podcast.

There is no monetary payment for writers, but perhaps, some glory. Authors will be credited during the episode and will receive two brief promos, one at the beginning and again end of the story's episode. This will allow authors to promote themselves and their works via our podcast.

Stories should be on the shorter side, ranging from 2,000-5,000 words, and should be in the horror, suspense/thriller, paranormal, or mystery genres. Dry humor and light romance (as part of the overall story) are permitted. All other genres will not be considered. Absolutely no political stories focusing on current events, satire or otherwise, will be accepted. All stories accepted for production will be subject to standard editing by the podcast's producers for grammar, clarity, accuracy (e.g., historical references), and overall listener enjoyment. Revisions may be requested.

Stories submitted to the Ye Olde Terror Inn podcast will be used solely for the purposes of this podcast. We will not submit stories elsewhere for publication or production. Authors will retain the rights to their individual stories; however, Carol M Ford Productions, LLC, will own the podcast episodes. The Ye Olde Terror Inn podcast will be available for free to listeners.

Formalized author guidelines will be available soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
