Taking Submissions: Thuggish Itch: Hospitality
July 24, 2019
Deadline: July 24th, 2019
huggish Itch is our horror and sci-fi anthology collection.
This is the place to submit your horror, sci-fi and speculative fiction stories.
Current theme: Hospitality
We love to travel. We always have. Part of that attraction is about getting out of the house and doing something new or different and, for us at least, travel often involves airplane, hotels and trips to all manner of restaurants.
For this collection, we would like you to send us your stories that feature some aspect of the hospitality industry. Just so we’re clear, that would include stories that feature the following aspects of the industry and those that work within them:
- accommodation – hotels, motels and inns
- transportation – planes, trains, taxi and ships
- food and beverage – restaurants, cafes and coffee shops
- tourism – travel agents, tour guides and hosts
Thuggish Itch is our horror, sci-fi and speculative fiction collection. Please make sure that your story falls within one of these genres. Be original. We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.
Please ensure that you read through the general guidelines below and format your submission accordingly. If you have any specific questions please contact us using the form on the home page or via the listed social media accounts.
