We know, you’re thinking corndogs by the sea and unicorn shaped cotton candy clouds, and we’re asking for Halloween Scares and Fall Horrors. But you’re a writer, right? You got this!
For the fifty-fifth issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for your most terrifying Halloween Tales and well constructed works of horror and dark fiction.
We’ll be accepting short stories, flash 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 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!
