Taking Submissions: Bon Appetit!

Deadline: August 1st, 2023
Payment: $10
Theme: High-End Cannibals

It’s that time again. PsychoToxin Press is issuing an open call for our next anthology. What we’re looking for this time is cannibal stories. Now when we say cannibal stories, we’re not looking for stereotypes like headhunters or TCM style hillbillies. What we’re looking for is elevated cannibals. Stories that occur in places like high-end restaurants or secret societies. Maybe it’s a cannibal cooking show on the darkweb. Maybe it’s an exclusive invitation to a dinner. Anything outside of the same tired stories. Submissions should be between 2,000-10,000 words. Pay is $10 plus a digital contributors copy. Please include contact information both in your email and on the first page of your submission. Given that we’re asking for cannibal stories, our guidelines are a little more relaxed for this one, however please keep the following in mind…

  1. No excessive gore or violence without a reasonable explanation. If it fits the story that’s great, but gore for the sake of gore is just lazy.

  2. No graphic sexual assault or violence against animals or children. Again it’s just lazy and oftentimes only used for shock value.

  3. You must hold the rights to publish the submitted work. You wouldn’t want anyone stealing your work, and we expect the same honesty from all contributors.

  4. PsychoToxin Press does not claim to hold copyright over your work if chosen for publication, all we ask is that you don’t reprint the story anywhere for at least 3 months after publication of the anthology.

All submissions must be submitted by August 1st to be considered for inclusion. All submissions should be sent to [email protected] with your name and title in the subject line. Thanks in advance and we look forward to reading your work.
