Yes, I would love to post your 500-word rant about why you hate slow elevators or why you think the Patriots winning the Superbowl for the millionth time is some absolute bullshit that you’re tired of seeing and you don’t understand why you’re so invested in it when you don’t even like sports, but you can’t help but be caught up in the moment with all these fans losing their shit over it
…and so on.
Got an idea for a post you’d like to see written? Looking for advice or thoughts on something? Have an idea for a personality quiz you want to see? An Angry Noodle rant you want to rage read?
Email me at email@example.com!
WHAT I POST
Lots of stuff
However, the below forms can be helpful suggestions (and they happen to be my favorites).
Got thoughts about being a writer? Advice for writing fantasy, sci-fi, satire, etc? Opinions on character arcs, worldbuilding, plot holes, and anything else to do with storytelling? Thoughts on your favorite or least favorite books? Share it here!
Book/Film/TV Show/Video Game Reviews
I’ve been pretty obsessed with streaming on Twitch lately, and it made me realize that doing media reviews and/or analyses would be a fun thing to add to my little site. So if there’s any kind of media you’d really like to review, I’m now taking those too!
I like lists. A lot. If you’ve seen some of our list posts, you might already be aware that I love dumb, goofy lists most of all. If you have a list of any kind, whether it’s meant to be helpful or to entertain, I can promise you it’s exactly what I’m looking for.
Anything funny. It can be political satire, a news article, an interview, a story, anything, really. Nothing’s off limits as long as it’s funny and not something that will get me arrested if I post it.
(Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy Stories)
I’m a big fan of worldbuilding, so I’d love to see the worlds people have invented (whether it’s through a short story or just a written description of your world). I’m also happy to accept general speculative short stories that aren’t necessarily grounded in the worldbuilding itself.
Articles about the world of speculative fiction and worldbuilding are also very much welcome. Ex: Why I like Fantasy Better than Sci-fi, Why Worldbuilding is Important, etc, etc.
I love ranting about the most mundane things imaginable. I also love hearing others rant about something that I want to rant about too. I’m a firm believer in the philosophy that everyone is a writer when they’re mad about something. So again, if it’s well written and won’t get me thrown in jail, I’m happy to accept rants about pretty much anything.
Please be patient. I run this site all by my noodly self. I will try to get to submissions as fast as I can. If it has been more than two weeks and you haven’t heard anything, please give me a nudge. I like nudges. They help me keep my brain meat nice and tender.
I prefer submissions to be less than 3,000 words. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the title and type of submission in the subject line (Ex: “Why Sci-fi Is Awesome,” Science Fiction List). I also prefer submissions posted in a word document rather than in the body of the email.
My current rate is $30 per accepted submission (meaning I pay you. Not the other way around. That’d be weird). I prefer to pay by PayPal.
If I accept your submission, I usually like to reach out with some questions to personalize the post for you and get your bio, socials, ask if you want to be added to the site as a guest author (for repeat contributors), etc, etc.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at email@example.com!
