Taking Submissions: Beyond the Nightlight

October 13, 2014


Deadline: October 13th, 2014
Payment: $15 and contributor’s copy

Theme: Fears fade as years pass. They are never as salient or real as they were when you were a child. Unless they are. For this anthology, we’re looking for the real, true terrors. The creatures that plagued you in the dark hours of the night. The bumps in the night that kept you awake. The characters need not still be children, but the fears must stem from childhood. Think Stephen King’s It, Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, and ghostly slumber party games.

Though the theme is child-centric, the anthology is not. This is not horror for children. Scare us. We are looking for fiction prose only, 500 – 13,000 words. We may consider pieces longer than that, but if you send it in, make sure it’s awesome. Must be original works, no fanfiction.

Simultaneous Submissions: No

Multiple Submissions: Yes

Reprints: Yes, but let us know where it has been previously printed and make sure you have the rights to have it reprinted.
