Days of Summer

For our next anthology, we’re looking for horror stories that take place in the height of summer, when the days are stifling and the full moon brings out the terrors of the night. When the afternoon sun beats you down and the brief night provides little relief. Give us stories of summer break and the monsters lurking in the woods or the psychopath living next door. Give us stories about summer love, heartbreak, and death. We want stories about the summer where everything changed.

Deadline: 5/15/21 (We will close early if we reach the word count for the anthology before the deadline)

Payment: $20 plus electronic contributor copy. $5 plus electronic contributor copy for reprints.

Word count: 2,000 – 12,000 (A little over or under is fine)
