Story Submission Guidelines
Whether you’re an experienced writer or new to the craft, we welcome you to our haunted house and thank you for your interest in writing a script for “Hearing the Haunted: a Sirenicide Anthology Podcast.” Please watch the video above and read through the guidelines listed below before you start your journey.
Stories are only accepted in the Sirenicide Script Format—no exceptions. Please see the attached template and past episode examples. (Live support is available to help with the script formatting.)
Submissions may contain a maximum of 3 scenes.
Horror, mystery, sci-fi and drama stories are preferred, but not required. We are also open to comedies.
Submissions have an 800-word minimum and a 4800-word maximum.
A cast of 1-2 people per scene is preferred, but we will cast up 4 people if needed. Single cast stories must still be an audio drama. (See “The Silent One” example in the productions listed below.)
Minimum sound effects and background noises are preferred. Production is not looking to design sounds for a war scene or heavily populated backgrounds, but don’t let that limit you…
We can workshop any issues that arise from SFX, casting and the script format. The core story is what’s key here!
Please send submissions as an editable attachment. Microsoft Word documents are preferred. Please do not submit your story or script in a PDF file format as they cannot be edited. Just download our template and save it for futures scripts. Hearing the Haunting - Script Template.docx
Immersing yourself in the Sirenicide lore by binging the 4 seasons of the serialized show will greatly increase your chances of getting your story picked up for Hearing the Haunted, as it will help you understand our show’s style. Follow this link to start “Sirenicide” or to reacquaint yourself if you haven’t heard it in a while. Please DO NOT write stories with existing characters. Fitting your story within the timeline of events is okay, but NOT necessary.
Please don’t write in the future (After 01/01/2020) unless you have cleared it with us beforehand. That being said, the past is fair game! We have stories set in 55 B.C., 1347 A.D., 1834, 1928… you get the point. Just make sure you understand your world history if you go there. That way when you twist it up it makes it even creepier! Write in time periods and decades of which you are knowledgeable.
Write stories in locations that you are comfortable with and knowledgeable of as well. Towns, rivers, streets and seas will have name changed to fit the Sirenicide lore. However, the names of continents, oceans, countries and states will remain as they are in our reality. Don’t let this be an obstacle for you; we can always help you rename towns and streets… just write.
All approved stories will be added to the expanded Sirenicide Lore Library and, under certain circumstances, may even be canonized. Stories are also accepted on a work for hire basis with the writer credited in the audio production and in other areas of publication.
If your story is posted anywhere else, DO NOT submit it to us. Upon acceptance the author agrees to release ALL their rights to the script to Atrium Dynamics LLC.
Payment is sent upon production completion, not air date.
1 Scene Stories or Stories under 1500 words will pay $50.00 USD via PayPal
2 Scene Stories or Stories between 1500-3000 words will pay $75.00 USD via PayPal
3 Scene Stories or Stories between 3000-4800 words will pay $100.00 USD via PayPal
Stories written on a volunteer basis will still have to meet all other guidelines.
Not all selected stories will air on the public feed. Some will air on the paid feed.
Please email all submissions to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) with the script’s name in the title with your pen name.
You may also submit them on our Reddit page: https://www.reddit.com/HearingTheHaunted/ for the public to vote on, but this is not required.

Punk rock was becoming polished. NOFX [was] a punk band we grew up listening to, and they had a record called Punk in Drublic, and it was awesome. It was game-changing; it sounded good. We wanted to take it to the next level. [...] There had never been a pop-punk band that sounded like nursery rhymes on steroids, on the mainstream level at least. And that's what I used to have daydreams of. I used to think the radio could use that, could use a band that was really powerful and catchy and fast and youthful and angsty.By May 1999, the group was nearing platinum status for Dude Ranch and sales targets were higher for Enema of the State. The Los Angeles Times ran a Sunday feature on the band two days prior to release, noting that "The musicians are sanguine about chances to repeat or exceed the sales of Dude Ranch, noting the always-shifting sands of pop culture and that they've already done better than they'd ever anticipated." Momentum began to build when US radio stations received advance copies of Enema of the State. MCA issued Enema of the State on June 1, and the release peaked at number nine on the U.S. Billboard 200. The album chart was gripped by the Backstreet Boys' Millennium, but Enema of the State still managed to move 109,000 units that week. The band was supporting Lagwagon in Europe when MCA executives phoned the trio about rising record sales. Joey Cape, frontman of Lagwagon, remarked that "They were selling, like, 90,000 records a day [...] I was saying things like, 'What are you doing here? Go home! Why do you want to be on tour with Lagwagon right now?" At a show shortly following the release of the album, DeLonge was approached by Noodles from The Offspring to congratulate him. "He looks at me right in the eyes and he goes, 'You're next,'" remembered DeLonge, who blushed and shook off the compliment.
