As you might be aware, we’re accepting submissions for our first show of the New Year – themed ENTRANCES & EXITS. What we’re excited to reveal is that we’re currently working with production company Heavy Entertainment, who are producing a show for BBC Radio 4 – and one of this month’s submissions could be recorded for broadcast later in 2015 in the BBC’s Short Readings slot. The writer of the broadcast story will be paid, and also reach literally millions of listeners across the world. Which is, you know, nice.

We’re accepting pieces between 800 and 3000 words long, but to be eligible for the broadcast slot (which will ultimately be selected by Heavy Entertainment from our shortlist) your story should be in the region of 2500 words, set in New York, and of course still relevant to the Entrances & Exits theme. Also, they’re looking for an USA-based writer for that slot – though all other writers will be considered for the Entrances & Exits show itself. So it’d help if you mentioned whether you’re based in the USA – stories will be judged anonymously otherwise as usual.

We’re extending the deadline even further to allow for this rather exciting opportunity – it will now be Wednesday, 14th January. Send your submissions to – any questions, just drop us a line. Good luck!
