Fiction must be in English, and previously unpublished in English anywhere, in any format, on any platform. Please do not query about reprints.

We will consider works translated to English, as long as you are offering first English-language publication rights.

We are seeking horror and weird fiction from 500 to 6,000 words. (Please respect our word counts. Query first for longer pieces.) We are not interested in extreme horror.

We receive 600 to 800 manuscripts each period, and accept less than 2% of submissions. Do not be discouraged by a form rejection.

Payment is (U.S.) 1.5¢ per word (one and one-half cent), with a $25 (U.S.) minimum (paid via PayPal) for first worldwide English-language rights, for use in the print, eBook, and online edition. Contributors also receive 2 copies of the print edition. We ask for a 6-month exclusivity. Copyright remains with the author, and a contract will be provided.

Submit stories in Standard Manuscript Format as a Word document or PDF, and e-mail as an attachment to: WeirdHorrorMag [at] gmail [dot] com

NOTE – There is no need to provide a mailing address on your manuscript.

Format the subject line of your e-mail thusly: Submission – Story Title – Author Name

We are not currently seeking any art or non-fiction submissions.

Please query if you have any questions.
