Taking Submissions: Frontiers of Fright: A Southwestern Horror Anthology

March 31

Deadline: March 31st, 2024
Payment: ($10) for the first 1,000 words, then a half (1/5) cent per word up to 6,000 words, plus a contributor’s copy.
Theme: Short stories and flash fiction with a focus on horror in the American southwest

Denver Horror Collective is seeking short stories and flash fiction for its new anthology with a focus on horror in the American southwest, Frontiers of Fright: A Southwestern Horror Anthology. Whether people found themselves in ranches, small frontier towns, saloons, railways, or mines, the American Southwest was a harsh wilderness—a desolate and isolating landscape of deserts and mountains. We want these same people and places with a horror heartbeat, spotlighting the creepy, chilling, and unnerving aspects of when the west was young. For this anthology, we are considering the southwest as places such as Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, western Texas, southern Nevada, California, and northern Mexico. Authors will be paid ten dollars ($10) for the first 1,000 words, then a half (1/5) cent per word up to 6,000 words, plus a contributor’s copy. For inquiries, please contact [email protected].
