December 28, 2018
Deadline: December 28th, 2018
Payment: AU$5.00 for stories under 2000 words / AU$10.00 for anything above 2000 words
Thuggish 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: Theme Park
Theme park, amusement park, fun fair or carnival – no matter what you call them, they are always a great way to escape from the ho hum of your regular life. From roller coasters to dodgem cars, ring toss to log flumes, there is always plenty of fun and excitement to be had (and plenty of opportunities for you to write some terrific speculative fiction).
Think roller coasters and amusement rides. Think loose lap-bars and dark tunnels. Think long lines, carousels and food poisoning. Try to think outside the box and give us something that would wouldn’t have seen before.
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 We also encourage new and unpublished writers to take the leap and get in touch.
