OPEN SUBMISSIONS: The Sirens Call – Issue 43 ‘WiHM10’ | #Horror #OpenCall #ReprintsWelcome #fiction


February is Women in Horror Month, and each year we celebrate by dedicating our February issue to all women, all horror!

For the 43rd issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for stories and prose of horror or dark fiction written by women only (sorry guys – April is just around the corner).

Your piece can be creepy, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or be flat out scary as hell!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • You must be a woman to submit.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction.
  • Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Ladies, let’s make the women of the horror genre proud and give them an eZine packed with talent, creative work, and chills! Not so hard, right?

Send us your horror pieces, and if they qualify, we’ll make sure about 35,000 people have the chance to read them!


Submission Deadline: January 31, 2019

Circulation: Approximately 35,000

NO WIPs or Excerpts: We are looking for individual pieces, not portions of longer works.

Short story word count: 1,000 – 2,500 (limit of one submission per author)
Long flash fiction word count: 500 – 1,000 (limit of one submission per author)
Short flash fiction word count: 200 – 500 (limit of three submissions per author)
Poem length: minimum 10 lines; maximum 50 lines (limit of five submissions per author)
Drabbles: 100 word prose (limit of five submissions per author)

Reprints are acceptable as long as you currently hold the copyright.
