Sunbury Press is now accepting submissions for an anthology themed and titled, Unopened Doors, edited by Catherine Jordan. No need to query. Send completed, edited, previously unpublished stories in .doc/docx format. E-mail submissions with “Unopened Doors” and title in the subject line to: [email protected]

Stories must be horror or dark fiction. These stories will be published by Sunbury Press in e-book and print. No erotica; no stories with a lot of spelling and grammar errors; no stories that glorify, minimize, or inaccurately represent child abuse, animal abuse, or sexual assault; no stories with intolerance of race, religion, nationality, physical or mental ability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

This anthology is open to a diversity of viewpoints, and we welcome a wider interpretation of the theme, including those perspectives faced by women, minorities, and marginalized persons from around the world. We want to feel your dread, grief, anxiety, and fear when faced by an unopened door.
