DEADLINE EXTENSION: If It Bleeds, It Leads! | #Horror #Anthology @Sirens_Call

Sirens Call Publications is extending the deadline on it’s open call for…

If It Bleeds, It Leads!

Anthology_IIBIL_phExtra! Extra! Read All About It!

For this anthology, we’re looking for stories that embody the spirit of the good ol’ newspaper headline! In fact, your story title MUST BE the headline.

We want feature pieces that belong on the front page; stories that draw you in and take hold of you as they unfold while the ink is still drying.

The work should exemplify the flashy style that only hot-off-the-press journalistic prose can entail. And if you want to go full-on tabloid, have at it. Give us the trash, give us the dirty laundry, but most of all, give us the juicy bits.

Remember, this is a horror collection, so be sure to keep one thing in mind: If it bleeds, it leads!

Here is a question one of the prospective authors asked us about this call: Is this anthology looking for horror stories in the form of newspaper articles?

The answer: Yes, that’s exactly what we’re looking for!

New Deadline: November 30, 2017

Word Count: 2,500 – 5,000 words

All submissions MUST be submitted to: Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com

Reading & Evaluation Period: Two to three months after close of the extended deadline


Payment: Each story selected for inclusion will receive a one-time payment of $15USD, an eBook contributor copy, and the right to purchase an unlimited number of print books at discount.

As per our standard guidelines, there will be no stories containing pedophilia, bestiality, or graphic rape scenarios accepted. For a full list of our guidelines, please visit our website www.SirensCallPublications.com.
