Sirens Call Publications is now accepting submissions for:
Mental Ward: Experiments
The elevator doors open, the lights are flickering, the gurney is wheeled into a dank, dimly-lit hallway well below ground. Does the Doctor have the patient’s best interests at heart, or is something more nefarious going on? How does the staff figure out what treatments are most effective and which are not?
In our other two Mental Ward collections, we asked you to tell us what happened above ground in the institute itself; what memories of the past were trapped in the abandoned hallways; now we’re asking you to tell us what goes on behind closed doors. The secret experiments that are feared and whispered about among the patients. Tell us what greed, the corruption of power, and the desire to be remembered will drive a Doctor to do the unthinkable to the unfortunate patients left in their care.
Tell your tale from whatever perspective you’d like, just make sure the story you tell is a depraved one.
Submission Deadline: April 30, 2014
Word Count minimum: 4,000 words – nothing less will be reviewed; no reprints considered.
