NIGHTLIGHT is an audio drama podcast featuring horror written by Black authors and performed by Black actors.

We started NIGHTLIGHT because we've known that Black horror writers have been around since forever, but they don't get a lot of air time. We wanted to change that, and make sure the writers got paid for their work. No one should work for free.

Why We Need Your Help

  • Each episode takes 20-30 hours to create and costs at least $100
  • We're way short of paying the professional rate of ~$400 per story
  • Black horror is in high demand, and having a story published on this podcast can give writers the boost they need to break in
  • More support = more episodes for you to enjoy
  • We'd really like to be able to pay our volunteers––they deserve it!

What You'll Get

Depending on which circle of the NIGHTLIGHT Legion you choose to join, you'll get access to things like:
  • A shout-out on the podcast
  • Bonus episodes
  • Behind-the-scenes info
  • Sneak peeks
  • Members-only Discord group
And if this isn't enough, you'll get to tell us what perks you'd like to have. We can't promise we'll be able to deliver, but we'll do our best.

Can't Help?

Everyone can help! If you’re unable to contribute financially, every share, tweet, or review is still very valuable. Not only do you help us find new listeners, you also make us feel warmth in the depths of our cold, dark hearts.

Together, we can bring Black horror into the light.
