Taking Submissions: Kids

May 31, 2015


Deadline: May 31st, 2015
Payment: Contributor’s Copy

They laugh, they scream, they play.
They’re innocent and harmless, cute and cuddly, the apple of their parents eye.

None of the above applies to them. Kids can be the joy of a couples life, but in the world of horror, they are anything but. These kids can kill, they laugh while you scream and play in the blood spilled from your mutilated body. They may look cute and cuddly but, on the inside, they’re pure evil.

Kids is an anthology about the devils spawn. Children who scare the living hell out of you. Newborn, toddler, infant, teenager? All are ripe for Kids. Whether they’re evil or facing evil head on – these are the Kids we want to see. This may be an anthology for the over 18’s but we want to see stories about kids under 18. Shock us, surprise us, feel free to create the new breed of terror.

Submissions open – April 10th, 2015.
Submission Deadline – May 31st, 2015.
Kids will be released on July 14th, 2015.

Send stories to [email protected] please. Once we receive your story, please allow two – four weeks for a reply.

Word count is 3000 – 6000. Submissions should be in Arial text, 12pt, and double spaced. Successful stories will receive exposure and a copy of the paperback on release.

No reprints, original stories only. Poetry or flash fiction is acceptable.

The anthology will be edited by Stuart Keane and Rob McEwan for Dark Chapter Press.

Stories can range from extreme to PG-13 and everything in between. We want stories that will thrill us, scare us, and make us cross the street when a mother pushes her pram towards us. This might sound obvious in stories about children, but gratuitous sex or rape is not permitted. Stories containing this will not be accepted.
