Taking Submissions – Millhaven Horror/Dark Fantasy Edition 2018

August 1, 2018

Deadline: August 1st, 2018
Payment: Royalty Split


  1. You keep copyright and all rights associated with the story. You give Millhaven Press first North American print rights, and permission to use the story in any anthology stemming from the original printing (such as a “best of” type anthology).

  2. Stories should be between 2,000-8,000 words (we may accept something shorter than 2,000 words or something longer than 8,000 but it has to be phenomenal).

  3. Do not submit a story for reprint. We are only interested in previously unpublished material (a story published on a personal blog is ok).

  4. No simultaneous submissions. Please do not submit the story to another outlet while waiting for a response from us.

  5. Multiple submissions are ok, but we will only print one story per author, per issue. If you aren’t sure which is your best, send more than one and we’ll decide.

  6. Use an easily readable font, double-space as .doc or .docx. Send as an e-mail attachment to [email protected].

  7. Send a cover letter with contact information. Use story title, genre and approximate word count in the subject header of the e-mail.

  8. This is a quarterly print publication and the deadlines for the genre themes are as follows.

  • Spring: Science Fiction/Fantasy (Submission Deadline 2/1/19)

  • Summer: Mystery/Crime/Espionage (Submission Deadline 5/1/19)

  • Autumn: Horror/Dark Fantasy (Submission Deadline 8/1/18)

  • Winter: Action/Adventure/Western (Submission Deadline 11/1/18)

    We realize a lot of stories cross genres (the best usually do).

    Submit your story with all possible genres in the subject and we’ll sort it out.

    Not all submitted stories will be published. Stories are chosen solely by the publishers. We will read all submissions and respond with an acceptance or rejection letter via e-mail (Generally, within 2 weeks). If accepted, a standard royalty contract will be sent shortly after the closing submission deadline for that issue.

    Each contributor will receive one free reader copy delivered to the address listed in the contact information.


    This is a royalty based publication (split among contributors after cost).

    80% Split evenly among the fiction writers.

    10% For cover artist (plus a $50 fee paid upon delivery of accepted design).


    Payment will be made via PayPal (no exceptions). Royalty payments will be made at the end of each of initial three sales months and then quarterly thereafter.

Via: Books of the Broken.
