Horror Bound Magazine Publications has put out a call for submissions. They’re seeking short stories for an upcoming anthology entitled Fear of the Dark (temporary title). The point of the stories should be to investigate the human fear of the unknown, the dark, and the common themes found in nightmares.
Reading Period: We will read stories starting March 5th to December 1st 2010 (or until the anthology is filled).
Payment: Payment will be $0.01/word CAN, based on the final, edited word count from Microsoft Word rounded to the nearest hundred words, plus one contributor’s copy.
All submissions should include an author bio and a short synopsis. They want to know why your short story fits our theme.
Submission guidelines: Stories should be 1500-5500 words, standard format, with the author’s name, email address, and word count in the upper left-hand corner of the first page. Stories should be sent as email attachments in Microsoft Word to email@example.com.
Do not expect a response unless your story is accepted for publication. They’re requesting first print rights and all electronic rights.
