Don't forget to check out the Fiction Podcast Script Competition. The Fiction Podcast Competition has an early deadline of April 17, so there is still time to adapt for this emerging medium at the lowest submission price. With the recent success of podcasts like Homecoming, Limetown, and Welcome to Night Vale, the world of fiction podcasts is gaining momentum. If you have a pilot, a teleplay, or a screenplay ask yourself: is this a great story? If it is, you might consider taking the time to tweak it for this new medium. Whether you submit with AFF or not, getting your script ready for this space can only enhance your portfolio of work. Interested in learning more about how to write audio fiction?
