OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to our quarterly eZine - The Sirens Call


   
Halloween/Fall 2020 - issue 51

SUBMISSION OPEN July 31st

For the 51st issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we're looking for short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry of horror or dark fiction that are well crafted, and since this issue publishes in October - feel free to slam home a Halloween theme!

We have a few taboos listed below, other than that, as long as you write a quality piece intended for an adults audience, we'd be happy to consider it.

We also welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright, however, no attribution is offered though you are welcome to include a credit to the original publisher in your bio.

Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor twist to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented.
  • No pieces containing coronavirus/covid-19 references will be accepted.
  • Don't break our set-in-stone taboos - NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Be creative, be morbid, be vicious, be eloquent - whatever you choose, show us what you've got and keep it dark. If it fits our criteria, we'll offer it up to our readership of approximately 35,000 sets of eyes!
