Theme: Stories that further the innovative and experimental tradition in horror.
ergot. is a literary website interested in furthering the innovative and experimental tradition in horror.
We seek fiction and hybrid work under 10k words [including excerpts and work in translation] that push out the boundary of what literary horror is and what it might become.
Work that values atmosphere and mood over plot.
Work that fails in new and unusual ways over work that succeeds in the tried and true.
If your own falls into this vein feel free to send a .doc, .rtf or .pdf to [email protected]
with the title:
SUBMISSION: [Your Name] – [Title of your work]
ergot. pays $25 per piece
We seek to respond to all submissions within 90 days. There is currently no deadline; submissions will remain open until further notice.
Please check back frequently as ergot. is a work in progress.
