Taking Submissions: Horror USA: Washington

October 31, 2019

*UPDATED*Deadline: October 31st, 2019
Payment: Royalties

The third entry in an anthology series showcasing horror in every state, “Horror USA: Washington” is all about the terrors, horrors, creeps, and shrieks found in Washington State.

Stories must be horror, they must be original, and they must take place in Washington State.

The submission deadline is 1 October 2019. The anthology target is 50 stories. There is no limit on the number of submissions per author, but we reserve the right to limit the number of accepted stories per author.

As payment, authors will receive royalties divided by word count.

First and foremost, all submissions must be horror. However, we recognize that horror is a very broad and often nuanced genre. To that end, we’ll read stories that fit into other genres (thriller, family drama, coming of age, science fiction, fantasy, comedy, romance, et cetera) as long as the story contains horror, and as long as horror is integral to the narrative.

ALL submissions must be within the horror genre, and MUST meet the following requirements:

Submit all documents as an attachment in .doc, .docx, or .pages format

12 point standard font (Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri, Courier, etc)


Submit via email to [email protected]

In the body of the email, include your name and contact information.

Unpublished stories are given preference, but we consider reprints on a case by case basis, as long as all rights have reverted to the author.

If your previously unpublished piece is accepted for publication in an anthology, we take First Print and Electronic Publishing Rights, with exclusivity for twelve months from the date of publication.

If we accept your reprint for publication in an anthology, we take nonexclusive reprint rights.

A copy of our publishing contract is available upon request.
