OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to our bi-monthly eZine - The Sirens Call

    All Men, All Horror - 'Screams in the Night' - Issue #20

As a follow-up to our WiHM issue in February, we are devoting issue #20 of The Sirens Call ezine to men in the horror industry. We'll be accepting short stories, flash fiction, and a limited number of poems from men only for this issue.

The criteria:

Your submission must be a work of HORROR fiction revolving around the theme of 'Screams in the Night'. A scream can be an ear piercing bleat of terror, the sound of tires screeching on a paved road, a mechanical sound made by a thundering machine, or even a distant cry of an unknown animal. Be creative, think outside of the box, but make sure your story of horror revolves around a scream.

The type of horror pieces we are looking for are psychological, monster/creature, ghost/haunting, alien/otherworldly, or just damn scary!

The type of horror we do NOT want are stories of abuse and revenge - revenge is acceptable if there is enough horror in it, but no 'wife beater' tales. And we'd prefer that you avoid stalker yarns with a 'strangled cry' at the end. This issue is meant to showcase the diversity of talent and ingenuity among men in the horror community, not reinforce industry stereotypes.

As a side note - this issue is not meant to compete with the WiHM issue, all due props to the women, it is a phenomenal issue and we couldn't be happier. This issue is meant to shine a spotlight on the men in the horror world in equal measure as the previous one highlighted women. Fair is only fair, right?


Submission Deadline: April 1, 2015

Short story word count: 1,000 - 2,500

Flash fiction word count: 300 - 1,000
