Taking Submissions: Cemetery Dance Magazine
Deadline: July 5, 2018
Payment: 5 cents per word and 2 contributor’s copies
We will be accepting submissions from June 5, 2018 until July 5, 2018 from authors who have never sold a story to the magazine before. If you’ve already had a story accepted for publication in the magazine, please wait for the next reading period. Thank you for your understanding.
PLEASE only send your very best original work. No trunk stories, no rejects from theme anthologies, no reprints of any kind. ONE SUBMISSION PER AUTHOR—make it count!
Guidelines: Well written horror, dark mystery, and suspense short stories up to 5,000 words. Originals, no reprints. We want tales that are powerful and emotional—creepy, chilling, disturbing, and moody. Suspense/mystery/crime tales with a horror element are always welcome. Both supernatural and psychological stories are fine.
Most common reasons for rejection: Lack of power, lack of originality, slow pacing, poor writing, boring themes, all gore and no heart. Read the magazine, see what type of fiction we are publishing—please don’t submit with a blind eye!
Multiple Submissions? Please only send ONE story.
Payment: Professional rates, minimum of five cents per word, plus two contributor copies. Payable within 30 days of publication. Up to 5,000 words; maximum payment of $250.
Response Time: Up to four months.
