Taking Submissions: Hootenanny Horrorshow

April 30

Deadline: April 30th, 2024
Payment: $25 and a contributor’s copy
Theme: Hillbillies and Horror

2024 is upon us, and with it comes From the Ashes From the Ashes first official open call from the newly minted press. We’re trying things a bit different with this in that this is only an announcement for the upcoming open call. The reason for this is to give authors who are interested in submitting a story extra time to hone in on the tale they want to tell, without the added pressure of rushing to get it completed.
So, without further ado…
We’re going to the mountains with this one, folks.
The theme – HIllbillies, Rednecks, Mountain Folk, and all the lore and traditions surrounding these majestic creatures. Think outside the box with these tropes and archetypes. Or, if you go with the old cliches, put a fresh spin on them and make them your own, new tales.
The actual submission period for stories will be the entire month of April, and only in April. Any submissions received before or after April 1st – April 30th will not be considered for publication.

A standard docx word file.
12 pt font (garamond is nice!)
Word Count 3-7k
No Indentions at all preferred.
***no reprints***
Authors of accepted stories will receive a flat pay out of $25 & a paperback contributor copy of the anthology—with the ability to purchase additional copies at printing cost.
