About

The goal of Eric's Hysterics is to feature the highest quality literary humor. New pieces are usually added on Monday. Mondays are hard. A laugh will help get you through it.
FICTION: We like fully-realized characters and clever plots. We have a very broad palette.
POETRY: Well-crafted verse. If you send a limerick or something with a rhyme scheme, it better be phenomenal.

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.
