A Very Scary Christmas 0

Do not submit here! This project is believed to be defunct. (October 2013)


We are seeking stories with Christmas horror themes, and are open to many sub-genres, including, but not limited to, supernatural, psychological, and all things that go bump in the night. If your tale brings a chill to a reader's spine and includes an element of Christmas, then it will more than likely be just what we are looking for. Add a drop or two of arsenic to a cup of eggnog and deadbolt the doors to keep Santa away, just in case he is actually an escaped patient from the local asylum, and submit your work to A Very Scary Christmas.

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.
