Pretty-Scary Submit to our anthology
Are you a woman that writes with a darker ink than most? Then we would like to see your spill! We are putting out an anthology sometime in the next year (slated for December 2007) and you could be in it! What is this anthology, you ask? An anthology of raw, female talent in the horror genre.
1.) MUST be a female!
2.) MUST write horror (this could be straight horror or a mix of horror with any other genre or subgenre, including but certainly not limited to splatterpunk!) We don't care, as long as it is well-written and original. Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romace, and Bizarro sub-genres totally welcome as long as the main theme is horror.
3.) Work MUST be the authors' original work, plagerism is NOT tolerated!
4.) Stories are to be no more than 5,000 words and no less than 500.
5.) Unless you are utterly outstanding and extremely polished with it, do not send in poetry. Short stories only, please!
6.) Only one submission per author, so pick your very best to send!
Finally, have fun. Winners will be notified twelve weeks after the contest has closed in order to ensure we have read all the entries and this will allow us time to pick the ones we believe to be the very best in the genre, by women.
Good luck! ..> ..>
