Taking Submissions: What Monsters Do For Love

October 31, 2019

*UPDATED* Deadline: October 31st, 2019
Payment: Royalties

An anthology dedicated to both human and inhuman monsters, and the things – wonderful, monstrous, and everything in between – that they do for love.

Stories must be horror, they must be original, and they must fit the anthology theme.

Submissions close 1 October, 2019. Our target is 50 stories. There is no limit on the number of submissions per author, but we reserve the right to limit the number of accepted stories per author.

As payment, authors will receive royalties divided by word count.

We’re looking for stories between 500 – 7500 words. A few words under or over won’t necessarily disqualify a story, but please keep as close to the guidelines as possible.

Stories MUST fit within the horror genre.


First and foremast, all submissions must be horror. However, we recognize that horror is a very broad and often nuanced genre. To that end, we’ll read stories that fit into other genres (thriller, family drama, coming of age, science fiction, fantasy, comedy, romance, et cetera) as long as the story contains horror, and as long as horror is integral to the narrative.

ALL submissions must be within the horror genre, and MUST meet the following requirements:

Submit all documents as an attachment in .doc, .docx, or .pages format

12 point standard font (Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri, Courier, etc)


Submit via email to [email protected]

In the body of the email, include your name and contact information.

Unpublished stories are given preference, but we consider reprints on a case by case basis, as long as all rights have reverted to the author.

If your previously unpublished piece is accepted for publication in an anthology, we take First Print and Electronic Publishing Rights, with exclusivity for twelve months from the date of publication.

If we accept your reprint for publication in an anthology, we take nonexclusive reprint rights.

A copy of our publishing contract is available upon request.
