Ongoing Submissions: Heathen Magazine

Payment: $0.05 per word
Theme: Horror and dark fantasy fiction

Heathen is a new literary magazine and multimedia platform spotlighting the best in horror and dark fantasy fiction. Released quarterly in a digital medium, the stories you’ll find in Heathen will be available in both text and audio formats. Once a year, the most-read (and listened to) stories will be collected in a physical annual.

Submission Guidelines for Heathen
Should you hope to have your story listed in an issue of Heathen, it should be reminisicent of the likes of Lovecraft, Poe, and Chambers. Though humanity finds itself at the root of all stories, tales told in Heathen should heavily involve monsters, beasts, the supernatural, or fantastical world-building.

We’re looking for stories no more than 7,500 words in length, with preference given to storeis that have less than 5,000 words. Our initial submissions period is now open and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. Central on January 31st, with our first issue being released Spring 2024. Heathen pays writers a HWA-qualifying $0.05 per word.

At this time, we are not looking for poetry, non-fiction, or art-only submissions.

Furthermore, we don’t require a lengthy cover letter, but we do want to know all about you, the author of the piece; not even about your resume or experience, but what draws you to horror and what inspired you to write the story you did.
