Taking Submissions: Untitled Ghost Stories Anthology
Deadline: February 21st, 2020
Payment: $5 for anything under 5000 words. $10 for anything over 5000 words.
Theme: Ghost stories! ‘Nuff said
Note: Reprints Welcome
For this anthology, we’re looking for the best of the best ghost stories. The kind you tell around a crackling campfire holding back the darkness surrounding you. The kind that stick with you as you make the dark trek to your car through an empty parking garage. The kind that make you sit wide eyed in the middle of the night because the rhythmic tapping from the other room is just a little too inconsistent and, somewhere deep down, you’re sure it’s getting closer.
Give us new and exciting takes on old tropes, give us original horror, give us classic ghost stories told expertly, give us comedic stories of spirits that are more a nuisance than a threat. We’re hoping to make this anthology larger than our first two so there’s plenty of room for all types of stories in this one, as long as they’re about ghosts.
Anthology Title: TBD
Word Count: 2,000 – 7,500. A little over or under is fine.
