Taking Submissions: Scary Snippets Family Edition

May 19, 2020

Deadline: May 19th, 2020

Theme: Family Horror

In these trying times the only thing we can rely on is family.


But what happens when the ones we love the most turn on us?

In this open call, the amazing publishers at Nocturnal Sirens want horror writers to explore the themes of family. What secrets do they hide? What evil can they commit?

Submission guidelines:
Stories cannot be over 1000 words minimum is 300 words, send only 3 submissions at a time, wait for our editorial team to get back in touch with you.

Evil aunt’s, stepsons, vigilante families, any family member is allowed but we want to get alot of mother, father and child stories since this comes out between mother and father’s day

Disclaimer:. Unfortunately, sexual abuse is an all too common issue among families. While this is heartbreaking and one of the best motives for murdering a family member, we would like to steer away from sexual, incestuous situations.

Pay is after taxes going to be 70% of royalties given to authors (divided evenly to all contributors)

Send all stories to [email protected]

Do NOT send any erotic or abusive stories. We don’t want pedophilia or incest in this collection.
