Event Details

We’re looking for original and previously unpublished fantasy and horror short fiction of maximum 1500 words, written in English. While we don’t officially have a minimum word count, we have found that shorter stories must work harder to convince us.

The theme, fitting for the season, is Rebirth. Send us your stories featuring vampires, revenants, zombies or phoenixes or anything else – good or evil – that came back from the dead.

We particularly love straight stories where someone is trying to get something and meets an obstacle, but we can also appreciate a story that touches us purely emotionally.
