What they're looking for:
Original speculative fiction: horror, fantasy, and science fiction. We're looking for short stories from across the big classifications and those shadowy places between: magical realism, fantastique, slipstream, interstitial, Weird fiction.

We will consider suspense or western, though we prefer it contain some speculative element.

We like voices that are full of feeling, from literary to pulpy, with styles unique and flowing, but not too experimental.

All labels aside, we want tales that expand genre, that value imagination in character, narrative, and plot. We want to see something new and different.

We encourage diverse authors, characters, and points of view; inclusive of all races, cultures, creeds, genders, orientations, expressions, status, and abilities.

Our issues include audio readings. If your story is accepted, you will have the opportunity to record your story, or have a colleague or one of our readers do so.

For all of those who like radio shows, you have the opportunity to record your story!

Unfortunately, upon further reading, it looks like they only accept submissions from those who are at least 18.
