OPEN Call for SUBMISSIONS: The Sirens Call – Summer 2022 – issue 58 | #Horror #DarkFiction #Zine #OpenCall #Reprints #fiction #stories #flash #poetry @Sirens_Call

Promo_Cover_for_Ezine

Summer 2022

The summer issue of The Sirens Call Zine is always a fun one!

For the fifty-eighth issue of The Sirens Call, we’re looking for horrifying and well-constructed tales of horror and dark fiction. This issue also has a sub-theme of summer disasters. That can mean vacations from hell – in the literal sense, summer creatures run amok, or even climate-oriented horror. That’s up to you, we just want a well constructed piece of prose that will wow us, or make us cringe!

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 burn hotter than the sun!

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 something you would want to read! If your piece fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of approximately 35,000.


REPRINTS ARE WELCOME!

Submission Deadline: April 30, 2022

Circulation: Approximately 35,000

Short story word count: 1,000 – 2,500 (limit of one submission per author)
