From the Horror Tree website:
Deadline: Open until full
Payment: Payment is made up of a share of money after deductions and is outlined in the contract notes. Each author gains one share per story.
While being made better is one of the biggest blessings of modern society, and illness isn’t something that we need to fear, there are some things about hospitals that make all of us afraid.
This open call is for all things medicine and medical horror. Whether it’s a wonder drug gone wrong or a doctor trying to conduct experiments, there’s a lot that you can do with this.
The nitty gritty:
We will accept reprints or original pieces. Up to 5000 words, though we’ll accept stories over that if they’re exceptional and fit with the theme.
This anthology will be edited by D Kai Wilson-Viola and has a slot for one more editor, if interested.
The theme is medical horror, but we won’t accept any stories that don’t feature it as a primary theme – anything not related to the story will be edited out.
ALL STORIES submitted will need to be edited – from the time of submission, you should promote the whole project, or the open call you submitted to.
The call will remain open until the anthology is full (between 10 and 20 stories, depending on length).
Payment is made up of a share of money after deductions and is outlined in the contract notes. Each author gains one share per story.
The basics of the contract (there is a specific one issued once it is acknowledged that you’ll accept being edited) are available here.
Email kushkakura at Gmail.com with ‘medical Horror’ + Your name + wordcount + date in the subject line. It may take up to six weeks to receive response on your piece, please be patient and understand that I do respect all stories sent to us.
Please also join the event and the group for all anthologies, and our mailing list.
