About

A group of explorers stumble upon a new species of plant in the depths of the rainforest. A fracking operation unwittingly releases a malevolent force from underground. A tainted water supply leads to bizarre behaviour in a small town. We’re looking for punchy, eye-catching flash fiction and poetry that tackles the subject of eco-horror. Plants, animals, weather phenomena… It’s time for Mother Nature to fight back.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
