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


   
Summer 2020 - issue 50

SUBMISSION OPEN APRIL 1st

For the 50th issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we're looking for short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry of horror or dark fiction - extra points for pieces that reflect the theme of summer, but it's not required.

We have a few taboos listed below, other than that, as long as you write a quality piece, feel free to submit it.

Short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry are acceptable provided they fit the theme within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.

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

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented.
  • 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 your 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 readers!
