Taking Submissions: Enter At Your Own Risk: Dark Muses, Spoken Silences

April 30, 2013

Deadline: April 30th 2013
Payment: $35 flat free

Firbolg Publishing has decided to add one more stunning Gothic story to our latest anthology! We are seeking authors interested in a truly challenging writing project.

The latest Enter At Your Own Risk collection is a radical look at differing points of view. Every story has a protagonist. However, every story also has a cast of secondary characters to round out the narrative and themes. Below you will see a list of the stories we are offering and the fascinating look into the perspectives of some of those secondary characters. Interested in a challenge? We are adding one more Gothic master to our list!

Edgar Allan Poe is one of the most famous Gothic dark fiction writers of all time. In his infamous story “The Black Cat,” we descend into a madman’s fears and paranoia. But what of the other two characters in the tale? The cat and the narrator’s wife play very significant roles in this story, but we never hear directly from them. We want the stories from the cat and the wife. How did they see these horrific events? How did they feel as they watched the protagonist slip into madness? Choose one of Poe’s other characters and re-tell his terrible tale!

Submission guidelines:

Deadline: 30 April

word count: 2000-7000K

Payment: $35 flat fee

We want the tone, atmosphere, and feel of the Gothic masters. Less gore/ blood and more fear/ suspense.
