For the 39th issue of The Sirens call eZine, we’re looking for solid horror pieces. They don’t need to fit any specific theme, they just need to be dark fiction/horror. We accept short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry provided they are written well and catch our attention. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the work.
Your piece can be creepy, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or simply be flat out scary as hell!
The basic rules:
- Write the piece well.
- It must be primarily horror/dark fiction.
- Pieces about sexual ‘stiffies’ are not welcome – don’t waste your time or ours with them.
- Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.
- Send us your horrific imaginings, and if they fit the bill, we’ll bring them to life for 35,000 readers!
