Horror writers can now submit fiction stories to DeadLights Magazine, a new literary magazine inspired by horror greats like Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Shirley Jackson. The editor is also reviewing flash fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction–all with a horror theme. Underrepresented writers are strongly encouraged to submit.
The first issue of DeadLights was released in February 2017 (both print and digital editions).
The editor has opened another brief reading period to curate submissions for the next issue.
Word length: 300-700 words for flash fiction; 2K-7K words for short fiction; 300-3K words for creative nonfiction; up to one single-spaced page of verse for poetry.
Token Payment: $50/short fiction; $10/flash fiction; $10/poem; $5-$10/creative nonfiction; $40-$80 for cover art. All writers receive a contributor’s print copy.
Reading period ends April 21, 2017. Contributor’s guidelines are available at the magazine’s website.
