Ongoing Submissions: The Dark Door
Payment: $25 per illustration featured (or a bundled rate of $25 for multiple marginals), and a rate of $15-50 USD per story depending on word count.
Theme: Terrifying tales and insidious illustration in the style of 70s and 80s pulp horror fiction zines
In this fateful tome, you will find the most terrifying tales, malefic music, and insidious illustration you have ever seen.
The Dark Door takes inspiration from 70s and 80s pulp horror fiction zines, and breathes new life into the format. This series features new works of fiction by up-and-coming authors from around the internet, illustrations by artists with a knack for the macabre, and dark music distributed via QR code which will undoubtedly get you in the mood for horror.
The Dark Door is published on a basis of three to four issues per year, pending submission volume and quality, and is planned to run indefinitely.
We rely on submissions from talented artists and writers to bring The Dark Door to (un)life. We pay at a rate of $25 per illustration featured (or a bundled rate of $25 for multiple marginals), and a rate of $15-50 USD per story depending on word count.
We realize that these rates are modest, however we are willing to publish works which are pre-existing and even those which have been previously published, so this can be a great way to earn some cash for your pre-existing works. Of course, you are more than welcome to create new work specifically for The Dark Door, if you so choose.
Submissions are always open, and will always be considered. Random submissions are reviewed each time we are assembling a new issue, and a new issue is published once we have found enough material. For this reason, any material submitted can be considered for inclusion for any future issue of The Dark Door, meaning you don’t have to worry about missing a deadline.
