Guidelines for Submissions:
At this time the Horror Bites Magazine is open to all short, horror fiction, including particularly scary or thought-provoking dark fantasy. Note, however, that there are some things that we don’t publish:
- Anything too close to ‘the classics.’
- Violence that doesn’t contribute to the story.
- Gore for the sake of gore.
- Torture porn and rape.
- Erotic horror.
All submissions are to be sent to [email protected]
Please format your subject line as “Horror Bites Magazine: [Your Story Title Here].”
In the body of your email, please include your name (or pseudonym) and word count. If the story is under 2,000 words, please paste the text in the body of the email, otherwise please attach it as a .doc, .docx, .odt, etc. Just use your better judgment. Only .PDF is unacceptable.
Accepted stories will appear in the first three issues of 2018 (February, April, and May) of the ‘Horror Bites Magazine,’ to appear on Amazon, iBooks, Gumroad, and anywhere else E-zines are sold. Once you have a story accepted for publication, we will ask for a 250-750 word author bio and headshot/logo for the author introduction section at the end of each issue. As this is a digital magazine, links to your own platform are not just allowed but encouraged.
