Taking Submissions: The Midnight Zone (Early Listing)

March 30, 2023

Submission Window: February 1st – March 30th, 2023
Payment: Contributors copy and 3 cents per word
Theme: Never-before-seen monsters!

Open for submissions February 1 from Dragon’s Roost Press:
a dark, speculative new anthology series,

Join featured authors Ramsey Campbell, Gemma Files, Gabino Iglesias, Gwendolyn Kiste, Joe R. Lansdale, Jonathan Maberry, Lucy A. Snyder, Jeffrey Thomas, and Gaby Triana, and the twisted editorial minds that brought you Stitched Lips, Appetites, Burnt Fur, and Harmony & Dissonance, to go to strange-and-dark new places, to plumb the depths of a Twilight Zone with sand in its teeth.

For our first sojourn, editors Douglas Gwilym & Ken MacGregor will aim the submersible toward the place where the unseen monsters feed–Novus Monstrum. Send us your original story that meaningfully features a never-before-seen monster (however you define the word).

Submissions will be open from Feb. 1 to March 30. Length 1k-5k, with a sweet spot of 3k.
3 cents a word plus contributor’s copy.

MORE DETAILS TO COME! This is just an advance notice so that you have a chance to get started! Post will be updated with all of the details ASAP!

[Full guidelines coming mid-January. Please note, ALL LAND, SEA, AND SPACE MONSTERS ARE WELCOME.]
