A creepy competition! Ghost stories are enjoying a come-back.
For our inaugural horror and dark fiction anthology, Unlit Press is inviting short story submissions on the theme of darkness. That could be the absence of light, the presence of evil, or the deranged thoughts of the afflicted. However you choose to interpret the theme, just make sure you leave us afraid to turn out the lights.
At Unlit Press we don’t forsake character and story for the sake of gratuitous violence and gore. We’re looking for stories with strong original voices, compelling characters and sparkling dialogue. Send us stories that step off the well-trod paths into the unlit wilderness of the unusual, the interesting, and the provocative.
- Word Count: 3,000 to 10,000 words.
- Deadline: 31 December 2018.
- Payment: One-off payment of £75 (approximately $100) plus one contributor copy for each manuscript accepted.
