Submission GuidelinesHere at Audible, we’re in search of the next generation of great audio storytellers, which is why we’re introducing Pitch @ Audible.
We’re looking for original, unpublished English-language works of fiction and nonfiction that are crafted for the listening experience. We encourage outstanding storytellers across mediums—from novelists to journalists, podcasters to filmmakers—to submit their best audio ideas to be considered as an Audible Original.
Pitch @ Audible will consider completed scripts, manuscripts and audio, as well as proposals with sample writing and/or audio. Audible Originals publishes both short-form (5,000 – 15,000 words, 30 – 90 minutes) and long-form (over 15,000 words, over 90 minutes) projects. Accepted submissions will receive an exclusive development deal with Audible Originals, which includes best-in-class editorial, production, and marketing support.
The Pitch @ Audible team evaluates submissions on a rolling basis, and creators will be notified regarding the status of their submissions via email.
We are currently accepting pitches in the following categories:
• Single and multi-narrator stories
• Scripted multi-cast work
• Audio documentary
We are not currently accepting pitches in the following categories:
• Unscripted podcasts
• Previously published works
