Taking Submissions: Tiny Nightmares
Deadline: May 1st, 2019
Tiny Nightmares will be a collection of short and terrifying tales of monsters, madness, and nightmares. The anthology follows up on Tiny Crimes, an anthology of short crime fiction featuring stories by Carmen Maria Machado, Yuri Herrera, Brian Evenson, Amelia Gray, and more.
For Tiny Nightmares, we’re seeking short stories that play with and expand the boundaries of horror fiction — think of the stretch of unlit highway between Jordan Peele’s Get Out, Samanta Schweblin’s Fever Dream, and Stephen King’s IT. Stories that turn our understanding of “scary” on its (trembling) head. We’re looking for:
- Stories of new monsters, and old ones that scare us in new ways
- Tiny, intimate horrors to make our hair stand on end
- Horror as cultural/political/environmental funhouse mirror
- Subversions of traditional horror tropes
- Something so scary we haven’t thought of it yet
Stories should be under 1200 words.
Stories should be previously unpublished.
Payment will be $100 dollars.
Deadline: May 1st
