Welcome to a whole new year, folks, one that will hopefully prove better than the last!
For the fifty-third issue of The Sirens Call, we’ll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, micro-fiction, drabbles, and poetry that fit within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.
Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark satirical edge to it, or be flat out terrifying!
The basic rules:
- Write the piece well.
- It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented
- No pieces containing coronavirus/covid-19 or political references will be accepted.
- Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.
Beyond that, be creative, be morbid, be vicious, be clever; show us what you’ve got, and if it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of 35,000 readers!
