OPEN SUBMISSIONS: The Sirens Call – issue 48 ‘Memento Mori’ | #Horror #OpenCall #ReprintsWelcome #fiction @Sirens_Call

eZine_Submission_Image

For the 48th issue of The Sirens Call, not only would we like you to write about a token that is reminiscent of death, but remember that death itself may lay around every corner. We’d like you to pay tribute to it in the most heinous ways possible by submitting pieces that honor it, horrify with it, respect it, and/or fight it to the bitter end; and we do mean the literal bitter end as each piece selected for eZine 48 must contain a death – mortal or otherwise.

Short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry are acceptable provided they fit the theme within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.

Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented and involve a death.
  • Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Be creative, be morbid, be vicious and show us what you’ve got. If it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of about 35,000!


REPRINTS ARE WELCOME

Submission Deadline: November 30, 2019

Circulation: Approximately 35,000

Short story word count: 1,000 – 2,500 (limit of one submission per author)
