No Extra Words by Producer and Editor Kris Baker Dersch, is an audio anthology seeking “submissions by any flash fiction author.”  It is a “podcast of great English language short stories under 2,000 words.  Stories come from all over the world.

One of the great things is they DO accept work that was published previously. Such a great way to expand your reach!

The other worthwhile note is,  though many stories are read and recorded by the editor, YOU have the option to record yourself reading your story.

The podcast is completely free to listen or subscribe to. Stories are used with permission and all remain the property of their respective authors.”

Listen to episodes of stories on iTunes, Google Play and Spotfiy as well as on the web from your computer.

Fee to enter: None
