Small press publisher Apokrupha LLC. is now accepting fiction stories for Volume 6, Issue 2 of Lamplight (est. 2012), a quarterly literary e-zine of dark fiction tales.
The editor is reviewing short- and long-form fiction. Stories should reflect the style of “weird fiction,” a subgenre of speculative fiction, and rely more on terror and fear than excessive blood and erotica.
Writers can read Issue #1 for free at the website to see what the editor likes.
Word length: up to 7K words per story.
Payment: As of 2016 LampLight now pays per word, instead of a flat rate of $150. The new pay scale is: 3 cents/word, up to $150/story and $50/flash fiction.
Although the reading period closes November 15, 2017 for Volume 6/Issue 2, writers should submit as early as possible as the reading period will also close once the editor has enough submissions. Read the writer’s guidelines at Lamplight’s Submittable page.
