Brainstorm your story idea on ARCHIVOS: Brainstorms

Do you have an idea for a story you’d like to pitch to the Roundtable?  We’d LOVE to hear it!

On each episode of the podcast, we invite writers to come on the show and pitch their story idea to us AND our esteemed Guest Host (usually a published author, editor, or publisher).  Your story will be center stage as we discuss it with you, ask questions, and offer suggestions on how to make it a strong as it can be.  We tend to gravitate to genre fiction (fantasy,

ARCHIVOS: Brainstorm Guest Writer Request

  • A Little Background Information...

  • List any published works by TITLE, DATE, and PUBLISHER. (If you have no prior publications, don't sweat it... we're just looking for background info)
  • Maybe you're in a band, or you helped out at a fantasy convention, or your building a rocketship out of Mountain Dew cans. We wanna know!
  • About Your Story...

  • Next we'd like the Hook or Logline for your story. If you're not sure what a logline is, check out this excellent article (link loads in separate window).
  • We can't guarantee it'll happen, but it will give us an idea of your author preferences, how you see your story, and some possible Guest Hosts we could invite on the show
