Description
Dirt in the Sky is the new horror mini-anthology from Filthy Loot focusing on juxtapositions. We’re looking for stories about the haves and have-nots, but also seeding elements of genres like alt-lit with body horror, or dirty realism with transgressive horror. Heady themes in the sugarcoating of genre fiction. Since I only said it 3 other times in this paragraph, this is horror. 
We’re looking for things that are general, but very specific—so if you have any questions, please just contact us.

What we’re not looking for: sci-fi/fantasy, experimental, torturous adult content, anything too humorous or bizarro.

Guidelines
Stories 2-5k, edited & ready for print, reprints accepted.

  • One submission per release, please include word counttitle and name on the attached Word Document
  • Authors retain all rights
  • Payment of $0.02 per word + a physical copy upon release (with the option to buy more at cost)
Please contact us with any questions.

Notes on what this press likes: Focused on misfit fiction (transgressive, existentialist, horror, and other cult fictions) and odd other ideas — we publish zines, art stuffs, & books in both limited edition and open formats.

Via: Filthy Loot.
