The Horror Zine 25

See other projects related to this listing


FICTION: What I Am Looking For: Orignial short stories that are creative and frighten me. Or at least, that creep me out. Character development is paramount. I am also looking for Hitchcock-type endings, Twilight Zone-type weirdness, and/or deliciously twisted. A surprising ending is a plus. I am also looking for good ghost stories, monster stories, vampires, but something exciting and new is even better.
POETRY: If you rhyme it, don't do it rigidly. In other words, do not focus on the rhyme instead of the content. Free-form is okay too. All poetry must be deliciously dark, and all must be original. Show some emotion.
VISUAL ART: We are looking for works that make the viewer want to study your piece. We accept all types of art: dark, mysterious art, surreal, yes; but also things of beauty. You are not limited in your choices of what to send us. Are you talented? Then send us your art.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • 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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
