Theme: Hard-hitting in a tasteful way, preferably with a supernatural angle.
DarkNowhere.com is a horror genre news site launching mid-February (mind our dust!). We are currently seeking authors to fill two aspects of the site: Horror related news, blogs, reviews, and editorials (Think Bloody Disgusting and Dread Central), and Horror fiction.
Horror related news pieces are currently byline only. Our publisher has deep experience within the world of entertainment journalism and we expect these positions to lead to interview opportunities, advanced screeners, and various media access in the short term.
What we are most excited to bring to this space is semi-weekly fiction. We are paying $10 per story for publication rights on the site as well as production on our planned bi-weekly podcast.
We are looking for horror that is hard hitting in a tasteful way. Preference is given to pieces with a supernatural angle, but we can appreciate a good psychological scare too. Gore is okay as long as it isn’t the focus of your story. No explicit sex, rape, or anything of a pornographic nature.
Fiction submissions can be sent in any format.
Ideal length is 1,000 – 10,000 Words.
Reprints and simultaneous submissions are not accepted
The magazine is looking for 3-Months exclusivity and the ability to leave the story online after that as well as include it in their podcast, after the 3 months of online exclusivity, rights return to the author.
