Submissions open from January 8th to February 28th. Selected authors will receive a £15 fee.
We’re looking for stories between 1,000-6,000 words. The theme is HORROR IN THE CLASSROOM – whether that’s horror set at school, college, university, or somewhere in-between.
You could even set your story at a nursery, but please bear in mind: any harm to children (of any age) must be sensitive and well-considered. We appreciate that this is a risk of the subgenre but ask all authors to be considerate of age when dishing out horror to their characters.
After all, there are plenty of teachers within these walls…
