Taking Submissions Folk Horror (Early Listing)

Submission Window: May 1st - July 1st, 2022 Payment: ¢1 per word CAD after approved edits - up to $70 CAD Theme: Folk Horror Welcome to our folk horror series!   We are searching for stories that fall into the theme of Folk Horror. ​ Theme: Give me your rituals, your sacrifices. Give me your isolated communities and their backwards practices. Give me your old or forgotten gods and the creatures that men fear to speak of above a whisper. Give me idols, pagan practices, and harvest festivals. Think movies like The Apostle, Wicker Man, Midsommar, The Ritual, and Kill List. Stories do not have to be set in modern day, or in our reality, but any fantasy submissions must be dark fantasy with an emphasis on the dark elements, and must have the intention to unsettle the readers. We’re looking for stories that explore the dark side of human nature in interesting and foreboding settings. In folk horror, setting is just as important as characters. We want stories dripping with atmosphere. Transport us, and give us a front row seat to your nightmares. ​ Please do not send stories with rape, gore for gore’s sake, or torturous adult content. Do not send stories that promote discrimination or hate speech. The editor for this anthology prefers to be creeped out, not grossed out. ​ With this call we are hoping to create two fantastic volumes, comprising of approximately 60k -  70k per book. Our goal is to make this a running series, so please send your best and make sure to support us by liking and sharing when you can.  ​ ​​Word count: 2000 - 7000 (Some wiggle room allowed - please let us know on the form, no need to email) ​ Payment: Flat rate payment ¢1 per word CAD after approved...
