Hell is for Children is a horror anthology and it’s all about terrifying stories involving children. Whether they are ghost stories, tales of possession, or simply being about children who are bad seeds, we are looking for stories that will terrify and linger with you long after you’ve finished reading.

We want dark, original stories with strong character development that embraces the theme of the anthology but still manage to push its boundaries as well. Gory, haunting, twisted or dark, if it’s fresh and original we want to read it.
