Taking Submissions: By the Seaside

October 30, 2021

Deadline: October 30th, 2021
Payment: AU$5.00 for stories under 2500 words / AU$10.00 for anything above 2500 words
Theme: Horror, By the Seaside

Many times, we’ve been lucky enough to live near the seaside. There is something about falling asleep to the churn of waves that just can’t be beaten. But with the ocean comes issues… scares… especially down here in Australia, where anything may be lurking beneath the surface.

For this collection, we request your stories about life by the seaside. Tales of sand and surf and all the things that may come with it. Be inventive, and take us away on a horrific holiday.

Thuggish Itch is our horror, sci-fi and speculative fiction collection. Please make sure that your story falls within one of these genres. Be original. We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.

Please ensure that you read through the general guidelines and format your submission accordingly. If you have any specific questions please contact us using the form on the home page or via the listed social media accounts.

To help make sure that your submission gets to the correct place, please include the following in the subject line of your email: Thuggish Itch – Seaside – Story Title.
