Taking Submissions: Ruth Anna Evans Novella Submissions

Payment: $100 and royalties
Theme: Horror with a clear voice and a fantastic premise

In search of one stunning novella. 17,500-40,000 words. This call will remain open until the story is found, but will not close before April 30. $100 advance with additional payments based on sales. The story should be horror but not focus on heavy gore, and on-page sexual violence is a no. I like shorter works with a clear voice and a fantastic premise. I’m looking for a one-sitting read that you can’t put down because it’s just that good. Publication planned for Winter 2024. For more information visit ruthannaevans.com.
