Taking Submissions: Nothing’s Sacred Vol. 5
November 16, 2018
Deadline: November 16th, 2018
Payment: $.05 per word for original fiction, $.02 per word for reprints. $10 per poem.
Note: Reprints allowed
Open for: Nothing’s Sacred Vol. 5 material.
Projected Release Date: April 1, 2019
Nothing’s Sacred is Jack of No Trades Productions’ horror magazine. It is made up of original short fiction, poetry, articles, book reviews, two sentence short stories, and comics. As said in the magazines’ namesake, nothing is off limits. The horror within can range from subtle to grotesque, psychological to physical, dark to full out terror so long as it is character driven. Theme wise, Nothing’s Sacred is relatively open outside of distasteful stories of rape, the degradation and/or humiliation of women, and child porn of any kind.
What we’re looking for:
Fiction – 3,000 word max. $.05 per word.
Reprints – Allowing reprints into Nothing’s Sacred is relatively a new thing for us. Nothing’s Sacred Vol. 4 saw the first reprint we’ve every accepted into our layout. The situation was a special occasion, and made us wonder what else is out there. Therefore, we will accept reprint submissions but are limiting the number of spaces in our layout for reprints to 2 per magazine. 3,000 max words. $.02 per word.
Authors – make sure that you own the rights to your reprints prior to submitting your work. We will be checking.
Articles – Should be related to or about the horror genre. 2000 word max. Pay rate $.05 per word.
Poetry – 3 poems max per submission. 250 words max per poem. Pay rate $10 per poem.
Two Sentence Fiction – Just as implied, these stories are extremely short. We will consider up to three submissions per author. Pay rate $5 per story.
Cartoons – We first introduced comics into Nothing’s Sacred in Vol. 3 to include a humorous element to our layout. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST TO BE CONSIDERED! Cartoons should include elements of horror in them, and may be either a full page or a banner size (as you would find in your Sunday paper), strip. Pay rate $90 (color), $55 (black & white) per cartoon.
Pay out for all material: Upon publication
Seeks North American Serial Rights (Reprint Rights where they apply), and Electronic Rights.
