 The theme is “Thoughts and Prayers”. It’s a common response to tragedy, personal, national, or worldwide and it does nothing to fix or help the situation. In fact it normalizes it. They shrug and turn away. This is your springboard to drive a spike into the heart of hypocrisy.  Whether through powerlessness or apathy, it is complicit. Take it where you want.


What I am Looking For:


I want stories from the female gaze (think Aliens, Resident Evil, Hereditary, Tank Girl). I’m tired of reading what men want to do to us. I want to read what we want to do to them. Bring me smart female protagonists whose first inclinations are  not to seduce the guard to get out of situations; they’ve got skills, they can get violent easily. I’m fine with them developing over the course of the story into someone like that, but please don’t revert to clichés unless you have your tongue firmly in your cheek. Please don’t use graphic rape for fridging purposes. If it’s part of a character’s backstory or development, fine, but don’t shoot the damn dog just to piss off your main character. 

My focus is horror, supernatural, and creeping dread. I’m not averse to extreme/slasher horror. I always love a bit of sci-fi or dystopia, but it’s not our focus, so if it’s your venue, make it scary. If you spackle a layer of women’s issues into it, even better; disenfranchisement, slut-shaming, trans violence, racism, misogyny, sex work exploitation, inequitable emotional work and housework, whatever exists in this world that pisses you off, feel free to put a metaphorical ax between its eyebrows.

All submissions must be in English and free of grammar, spelling, or language issues.

All submitted stories are subject to editing for grammar, spelling, formatting, and minor language fixes. I will not heavily edit stories, but may change formatting, or change paragraph and line breaks to increase readability.

Previously published work will be considered, but not within three years of previous publication. 

Acceptances will be announced two weeks after submission closing date. 

Your story will be promoted on our Facebook and Twitter page on day of publication, but please take initiative and promote yourself on your own social media platforms. Let’s make this a community of writers and readers.

Please include your name, a link to any social media platforms you promote your writing on, one or two links to previous publications or posts if relevant, a short bio (100 words max), and why you think your story fits feminist horror.
