Taking Submissions: Trigger Warning: Body Horror
Deadline: February 28th, 2019
Trigger Warning is an annual collection of stories geared toward making readers uncomfortable. This is the place to be gratuitous, to expound on the details that might make readers wish they could turn their eyes away. So long as you write well enough that they are unable to. Each year Trigger Warning will focus on a different theme.
In 2019 our theme is body horror! As per Wikipedia: Body horror or biological horror is a subgenre of horror which intentionally showcases graphic or psychologically disturbing violations of the human body. These violations may manifest through aberrant sex, mutations, mutilation, zombification, gratuitous violence, disease, or unnatural movements of the body. There you have it.
- We will not accept any stories about rape. (Yes this means the aberrant sex must be consensual.)
- Racism/Sexism/Bigotry of any form will never be accepted here.
- Stories between 1500-5000 words prefered.
- Double check your grammar and spelling.
- Format your story correctly.
- Please submit all stories in DOC/RTF format.
- We prefer stories that have not been published before.
- We prefer to avoid multiple and simultaneous submissions.
- We retain exclusive publishing rights for 12 months.
- We pay $5.00 for stories up to 5000
- Deadline is 2.28.19
