Taking Submissions: Not Your Average Monster

June 30, 2015


Deadline: June 30th, 2015
Payment: 1 cent/word, 2 contributor copies, 1 digital copy

Submissions are now being accepted for our debut themed anthology: NOT YOUR AVERAGE MONSTER (tentative title)

WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR: Your Standard Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies, Sasquatch, Kaiju, Ghosts or any combination of the above.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR : Stories about monsters that are rarely seen in your average horror films and novels. We want to read stories from a variety of cultures and mythologies across the globe about creatures that may be well-known in the country of origin, but unheard of state-side. Or you can create your own monster. Just make sure that the creature is not derivative. Gore is fine, and even expected. This is a horror anthology after all. Content may be R-rated, but we will not consider anything that contains graphic depiction of child abuse or rape

REPRINTS CONSIDERED IN RARE CASES – Basically a story will need to match our theme perfectly, and be eligible for inclusion immediately.

MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS: Will be considered, but only one story per author will be chosen.

PAYMENT: Via PayPal – 1 cent/word (rounded up to the next dollar) + 2 Paperback Contributor Copies mailed to you & 1 Digital Copy in the format of your choice

LENGTH: Between 3K – 20K Words. We are mainly seeking short stories, but we will accept up to 2 novellas for inclusion if they fit the theme.

SEND ALL SUBMISSIONS TO: [email protected] with the following in the subject line – NYAMAnthology_(title)_(author_name).

QUESTIONS: Please submit them to the aforementioned email or to our Facebook Page, linked below.

FORMAT: Stories should be attached as a Word document, in Times New Roman or similar,12 point font, with the author’s name and exact word count. If accepted, we will require a short, 50-150 word author biography to include in the anthology.
