Taking Submissions: Women of the Woods

June 30, 2020

Deadline: June 30th, 2020
Payment: One cent per word
Theme: The lore, myths, and legends of women who dwell in the forest.

Women of the Woods is an upcoming collection about the lore, myths, and legends of women who dwell in the forest. Historically, it’s the witches, artists, and outcasts who make the dark forest their home. Whether you retell a piece of folklore or create something altogether new, Fabled Collective would love to see your story.

We are looking for spooky, eerie, gothic tales that leave out the gore and focus more on a feeling of dread and foreboding. We’re interested in stories with rich, haunting settings. Think dark fantasy or quiet horror. Give us complex characters, ghosts, witches, magical realism, and more!

Submission Guidelines:

  • Stories between 2,000-8,000 words.
  • Please format all submissions TNR 12pt, double spaced, with page numbers. Word documents preferred.
  • Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know immediately if you’ve accepted publication elsewhere.
