March 29

Deadline: March 29th, 2024
Payment: FICTION: £40 per story regardless of length, INTERVIEWS: £60 per interview regardless of length and including accompanying illustrations or photographs., NON-FICTION: £60 per article regardless of length and including accompanying illustrations or photographs.
Theme: Mixture of two genres or non-extreme horror

Midnight Street Press publishes a variety of fiction anthologies and collections, as print and ebooks, in the spirit of the magazine that inspired it.

FICTION

  • I’m looking for stories that have a mix of two or more of these genres:  horror, dark fantasy, sci-fi and slipstream, that explore original themes or traditional themes from an original perspective.

  • There is no specific word limit.

  • Strong language and appropriate sexual imagery is acceptable providing it is in context and important in developing character.

  • Correct grammar, including spelling (English or American English), sentence and paragraph construction and punctuation is very important unless the nature of the piece or the author’s style requires a less grammatical approach, in which case this should be specified in the covering message. I find it very tedious to correct these things!

JOURNEYS INTO DARKNESS – DEEP HORROR

  • This will be a section within the magazine that will include two or three stories in this genre.

  • What I’m looking for is any or all of these: fantastic, supernatural, psychological, very creepy and frightening.

  • Please DO NOT send slasher or extremely gory, badly written and constructed stories with no character arc. I hate these!

INTERVIEWS

  • These can be in any style and must include contact details for the interviewee.

  • There is no specific word limit.

  • Where possible, include pictures (jpegs please) and author biographies.

NON-FICTION

  • This can be on any subject relevant to the content of the magazine.

  • There is no specific word limit.

  • Where possible, include pictures (jpegs please)

ARTWORK

  • Please submit a portfolio (jpegs please) or website address and covering message indicating where your work has been previously published.

SMALL ADS

  • There will be a page of small ads. These will be text only, together with any links, and grouped into categories. Please ensure that any ads are relevant to the magazine’s material. It’s not certain yet whether the magazine will be produced electronically or just as a print magazine. There will be no charge for these. Please send to the email address below.

GENERAL POINTS

  • For an idea of the type of work I’m more likely to accept please refer to other Midnight Street Press publications.
