Taking Submissions: Shadows at the Door

March 1, 2016


Deadline: March 1st 2016
Payment: £45 on day of publication, 3% of sales over first 12 months and your own copy of the book

Shadows at the Door is in the process of publishing our very first anthology. The anthology will feature illustrations, with an audiobook also being produced. We have an open call for submissions until 1st March 2016. The anthology will be funded through Kickstarters, and will be the first in a series of high quality anthologies. We’re very excited to introduce you to this opportunity.

Word Count: 5,000 – 7,000.
Fee: £45 on day of publication, 3% of sales over first 12 months and your own copy of the book.
Copyright: Rights remain with Shadows at the Door for 12 months after publication.
Theme: Modern ghost stores, or similar content. Stories must be based locally to each writer. We’re not looking for stories with excessive gore and/or sex, we believe that less is more.

We like stories by M.R. James, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Robert Aickman, Washington Irving, and similar.

Please send your submission to [email protected]

Best of luck.
