Sirens Call Publications is extending the deadline on it’s open call for…
If It Bleeds, It Leads!
Extra! 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!
