Taking Submissions: Untitled Anthology On Dreams, Nightmares, Visions, And Hallucinations

March 15

Deadline: March 15th, 2018
Payment: $5-20, depending on length and a contributor’s copy

An untitled anthology on DREAMS, NIGHTMARES, VISIONS, and HALLUCINATIONS.
DEADLINE: 15 MARCH 2018

Everything is not as it seems.

The world appears normal, but something is off.

Is the hallway stretching? The windows and doors too wide?  Are colors this vibrant, this alive?

Sharp claws and jagged teeth closing in.

You run, but everything slows.  The creature’s breathing intensifies, its poisonous breath slaps the back of your neck.

A crack appears, the seams split, and reality crumbles.  Are you falling or floating?  The music echoes, raindrops against memories.  The past, present, and future are one, birth and death the same moment.

You scream—awaken, covered in sweat.

The nightmare fades, shards of the dream fade into the ether.

***

The wise one kneels before the altar, meditates as candles and incense burn.  Through rhythmic breathing and concentration, spirit separates from body and roams the astral plane.  The wandering soul happens across a curtain of blue velvet, blowing in the gentle breeze.  The answers are behind the fabric—once pulled aside, everything shall be revealed.

***

What is that?  Is it real?  It can’t be…

TRANSMUNDANE PRESS proudly announces a new anthology, this time exploring DREAMS, NIGHTMARES, VISIONS, and HALLUCINATIONS.

We are looking for stories centered upon the mysterious powers of the mind—the images that bewitch us while we sleep, the terrors that make us dread bedtime, the prophecies delivered from the divine, and the illusions that appear tangible.

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES:

Send stories that are heavily edited and ready for us to read.

These must be original pieces for first-time publication.

WORD COUNT:  No longer than 6,000 words.

FORMATTING:

  • Your submissions must be in 12 point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced with page numbers.
  • We like headers in the top right corner with your last name and page numbers so that your work can’t get jumbled up.
  • A cover sheet with author information: address, e-mail, phone number, word count, a brief author bio, and your platform links.

SUBMITTING THE FILE: word doc, docX, or RTF to [email protected].  Your submission file should be saved as DNVH_LAST NAME_STORY TITLE so we can easily find your work during the consideration and editing process. (example: DNVH_SMITH_THE AWAKENING)
