Taking Submissions: The Toilet Zone
Deadline: May 30th, 2019
Payment: $5, Equal share of 30% of the anthology profits
…no, don’t panic, we are not looking for lavatory-themed tales of terror – although should your short story involve the smallest room in the house, we’d be more than delighted to read it!
The theme for this anthology is short horror stories that will make an ideal sit-down read, just long enough for those extended stays at the convenience, and terrifying enough that they really are best read whilst over water….
This anthology will be compiled by the incomparable author and filmmaker Bret McCormick, so be sure to write to impress!
We have based story length upon the average time spent upon the convenience (10-15 mins) and the average reading speed (200-250 words per minute), so that the stories within this exceptionally unique anthology will be the perfect ‘per visit’ length!
NOTE: we will also accept a handful of shorter stories – ‘flush fiction’ – if the fit is right!
To submit, email your polished story to [email protected]
