NOTE: We are not the publishers of the open anthology calls listed on the site. If you have a question concerning one we can try to help but can’t promise to answer all questions regarding them.

So, aside from the above… Have a suggestion for an anthology we don’t have listed? Love mail? Hate mail? Want to do a guest post on writing? Want to tell us about an anthology you found out from us that you got published in? Drop us a line we’d love to hear from you!

Important! For any anthologies you are dropping by to let us know about. Moving forward we are only posting about anthologies with deadlines, have no submission fees, and that give a form of payment to the authors (upfront payment, royalties, or a physical contributor’s copy.) We believe that authors who are working on a story for your anthology should know not only how long they have to write but also be compensated for their time, work, and talent.

If you’re submitting to Trembling With Fear, please make sure you’re within the appropriate submission window:

Submissions for drabbles, serials, and unholy trinities are always open year-round. No set deadline here.

Short story submissions are open in the following periods:

  • Winter: 1-15 January
  • Spring: 1-15 April
  • Summer: 1-15 July
  • Fall: 1-15 October

Submissions for special editions are:

  • Valentine’s: 1 December – 31 January
  • Summer holiday special: 1 April – 31 July
  • Halloween: 1 August – 13 October.
  • Christmas: 1 November – 7 December.

If a contact form does not appear above, you may also e-mail us directly at: [email protected] though responses may be slightly slower. (If one does not appear, please let us know what OS/browser you are using when sending in your query so we can try and resolve the issue for future readers who are trying to reach out!) Have a great day.
