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

    Words of Death - Issue #18

Our end-of-the-year issue traditionally centers around death, and this year is no exception.

We're keeping it very simple and open-ended and asking you to submit stories of death. They can be stories leading to death; stories of dying; stories after death; or stories written from the perspective of Death itself.

This is a Horror and Dark Fiction publication, so we ask for works that are not only topical, but genre suitable as well. With that said... Bring out your Dead!

*Undead does not qualify unless the death that created the state of being undead is a significant portion of the piece.

We accept poems of up to 50 line; drabbles (up to 5 per author); flash fiction of 300 - 500 words; short stories of 1,000 - 2,500 words.

Reprints are acceptable as long as you currently hold the copyright.


Deadline: December 5, 2014

All submissions MUST be submitted to: Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com


eZine Submission guidelines:

Submission deadline is midnight, December 5, 2014 (Pacific Standard Time).
