OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to our quarterly eZine - The Sirens Call


   
Spring 2021 - issue 53

SUBMISSION OPEN January 1, 2021

Welcome to a whole new year, folks, one that will hopefully prove better than the last!

For the fifty-third issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we're looking for works of horror and dark fiction.

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 be flat out terrifying!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented and fit the call.
  • No pieces containing coronavirus/covid-19 or political references will be accepted.
  • Don't break our set-in-stone taboos - NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Beyond that, be creative, be morbid, be vicious, be clever; give us a peek of what scares you, and if it fits our criteria, we'll offer it up to our readership of approximately 35,000 readers!


REPRINTS ARE WELCOME


Submission Deadline: January 31, 2021

Circulation: Approximately 35,000
