Taking Submissions: Dark Visions

December 21, 2012

Deadline: December 21st, 2012
Payment: Flat Fee of $100 for each Accepted Manuscript

Dark Visions’ is an upcoming anthology that will focus on the darker side of the street.

For this collection of short stories, we’re looking for work that fits comfortably into the Dark Horror and Dark Fantasy genres, but that is a ‘cut above.’ If you’re an author whose subject matter is complex, disturbing, visceral, or brooding and thought provoking, then you’ll want it included in ‘Dark Visions.’

As with each of our upcoming anthologies, it isn’t our intention to limit the creativity or our authors by establishing specific themes for each of the collections. Preferring instead to let each writer’s words speak for themselves in an effort to uncover the best and brightest new voices working in the field today. ‘Dark Visions’ is intended to celebrate this creativity, without limitations.

If you feel your work contains the tension, pacing and great themes that are necessary to terrify a reader, leaving them breathless yet clamoring for more, we want to hear from you. Please review our Submissions Guidelines below, and contact us with any questions.

*’Dark Visions’ is a working title. Grey Matter Press reserves the right to change the title as necessary.
