Spring will be here before you know it, and so will our Spring 2022 Zine!
For the fifty-seventh issue of The Sirens Call Zine, we’re looking for horrifying and well-constructed tales of horror and dark fiction. This issue also has a sub-theme of bizarre horror. So if there is something a little quirky and off-beat rattling around in your coffers, feel free to send it in for this issue.
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.
The basic rules:
- Write the piece well.
- It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented and contain a death.
- 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.
Be creative, be morbid, be vicious, be clever, and, most of all, write about death! If your piece fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of approximately 35,000
