Cemetery Dance Magazine
Richard Chizmar, Editor-in-Chief
P.O. Box 623
Forest Hill, MD 21050
FICTION: Horror, dark mystery, and suspense short stories up to 5,000 words. Query for longer material. We want tales that are powerful and emotional -- creepy, chilling, disturbing, and moody. Suspense/mystery/crime tales with a horror element are always welcome. Both supernatural and psychological stories are fine. Most common reasons for rejection are: lack of power, lack of originality, slow pacing, poor writing, boring themes. Read the magazine, see what type of fiction we are publishing -- don't submit with a blind eye!
SUBMISSION FORMAT: Send us manuscript and SASE. No electronic submissions. Simultaneous submissions are okay, if noted in cover letter. Authors outside the United States should send disposable manuscripts with a business sized SAE and proper US postage. US postage can be purchased online at usps.com from anywhere in the world. No IRCs, please.
RESPONSE TIME: Averages 2-4 months.
ARTWORK: We solicit all our cover and interior artwork directly. Query first with samples.
PAYMENT: Professional rates of three to five cents per word, plus two contributor copies. Payable within 30 days of publication. Up to 5,000 words; maximum payment of $150. All rights revert to the author upon publication.
READING PERIOD: We are open to submissions year round.
Please do not send any email submissions, proposals, queries, or pitches.
