About

Alter Press is pleased to announce that submissions are open for Dread Time Stories. The stories that we all now from our childhoods are just the beginning. The reality is much more terrifying... Alter Press is looking for previously unpublished takes on childhood fairy tales with a splatterific bent! Take them in a new direction. Did Grandmother get eaten or did she eat the wolf? Did Rumpelstiltskin truly offer freedom for the spun gold or was he simply a slave to a vicious demon? These are the questions that we would like to see asked, the scenarios explored! Twist your inner child to its limits!

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
