Gravelight Press Anthology Series Current Words Publishing (Gold Star Program) Gold Star

EVERY ODD YEAR... Gravelight Press, the horror imprint of Devil's Party Press, LLC, publishes a new volume of Halloween Party, the Gravelight Press horror anthology that features short stories and poems relating to all things horror.

Submission dates run from July 1- to November 30th of the even year before, so, for the 2021 anthology the submission dates were July 1-November 30, 2020. Selected authors are typically notified in January of the year of publication, so, for the 2021 anthology, selected authors were notified January 2021. In 2023, authors will be notified in April, as we moved, and are behind schedule due to that. See Devil's Party Press blog for more information on the move.

Selected authors are paid for their stories, for 2023 the payment is $25 per story or every 1- 3 poems. All published authors also receive a free copy of the book, typically valued at $15. The $25 payment makes you eligible for membership in the Horror Writers Association (https://horror.org/gather-your-documentation/).

HOW MANY SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED?

We accept poetry and short stories. A person could have more than one of each accepted. Ultimately, we will choose approx 20-25 authors for a good-sized book.

DO YOU NEED MY BIO?

For your submission it says bio of 100 words. In truth, when it comes time to publish the anthology, that is when we will need your bio, and it should be 300 words +/- a few words. You SHOULD include links to your universe (website, blog, what-have-you) in that bio.
