Coming this summer: Midwest Weird

Exile in Guyville by Amy Lee Lillard, coming May 2024

This summer, we at Broads and Books Productions are launching Midwest Weird, an audio literary magazine featuring weird fiction and nonfiction by Midwestern writers.


Whether it's surreal fiction, strange nonfiction, or everything weird in between, Midwest Weird is the podcast home for stories that stick with you.

Submit your work!

Do you write strange stories? Do you know someone who does?


We’re looking for weird work from writers based in the Midwest. We’re especially looking for work from writers who are women or nonbinary, part of the LGBTQ, BIPOC, and disabled communities, and/or other underrepresented writers.

We’re also looking for writers who are excited about creating audio versions of their work. Midwest Weird is expanding the notion of a literary magazine, and what creators of today can do.
