New Meat in a Cold Room (NMCR), the latest conceptual anthology from Filthy Loot, an independent press based in Ames, IA, is a unique mixtape of stories exploring hauntology, post-punk, and splatterpunk concepts. Before submitting, potential contributors should take the time to familiarize themselves with these terms.

There are only *five* slots, and previous anthologies have had ratios of up to 40:1, so please ensure that you submit your best work. Submissions are due March 15, 2023. We are discouraging reprints for this particular anthology. We apologize for the long reading period, as we have only one submission reader.

All rights revert to the author after publication, but we appreciate a window of exclusive publication.


Guidelines: 3-6k words, fiction, strictly within the parameters explained above. *ONE* submission per author.

Compensation: 4¢ per word + contributor copy (additional copies available at cost+shipping any time after publication).

What we’re not looking for: stories that feel too broad, stories featuring stock monsters/characters, and stories aimed at young audiences. We’re a press that focuses on amazing writers with strong aesthetics.
