Monsters Out of the Closet


Monsters Out of the Closet is a horror fiction podcast dedicated to proudly featuring spooky and strange stories, poetry, songs, and other creative content from diverse LGBTQ+ voices.



Submissions are currently closed.

If you are a trans writer or writer of color, we strongly encourage your submission!

Submissions are compensated at $0.01/word for previously published pieces, and $0.02/word for first run. Music is compensated at $1/minute for previous released tracks, and $2/minute for music released through us. All pieces under 500 words or 5 minutes are compensated at a $5 flat rate.

We generally have difficulty accepting pieces over 5000 words long or under a page. No ableist, racist, transphobic, homophobic, sexist or otherwise oppressive work will be accepted. We evaluate graphic or triggering content on a case-by-case basis—but gratuitous sex and violence does not fit our show’s tone. Lastly, we only accept work by self-identified LGBTQ+ artists! Thank you!

We are always seeking new voice actors!

To read/act for us:
