Editors Michael Knost and Mark Justice are looking for short story subsmissions for Appalachian Holiday Hauntings. Here are the guidelines:

Publisher: Woodland Press

Publication Date: November 1, 2009

Word Count: 1000 to 3000 words

Pay: three-cents per word plus contributor copy (one-cent per word on reprints)

Submit To: xmasanthology@yahoo.com

Format: Attached RTF or Word Document file. (do not copy and paste into email body)

Deadline: September 1, 2009 (do not inquire on status of submission until after this date)

“We are looking for traditional Christmas ghost stories set in the Appalachian region. Think Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with an Appalachian backdrop. However, given this example, we want to make sure you understand that stories may be set in any time frame, including the present. We are not interested in tales that disrespect or alter the religious aspects of the holiday.”

No simultaneous or multiple submissions. No explicit language or sexual content (this project will be in regional school systems)
