Taking Submissions: Skeptics Must Die

May 1, 2016


Deadline: May 1st, 2015
Payment: $20 per story

What we are looking for:
It’s an old trope, the skeptic who moves into the haunted house only to eventually start to believe in the supernatural about the time a ghost tears his life apart. This is the story we are looking for but just because it is a trope doesn’t mean it can’t be unique. It doesn’t have to be a haunted house,  there’s a whole world of cryptids out there just waiting to attack unsuspecting documentary teams in the woods. We are looking for stories that are Dark Comedy, not a parody or spoof. You must scare us & make us laugh, not one or the other.
