Are you accepting manuscript submissions?
Check out our Submissions button--we also tend to publish them on places like Horror Tree and others.
How hard is that deadline? If I'm a couple of days late, am I out of luck?
The deadline isn't firm, so if you're a few days late, go ahead and shoot it to us.
Any helpful hints on how to not get thrown in the "No" folder?
- When you think your story is ready for submission, read it out loud two times. This will help you catch awkward sentence and dialogue. Also, make SURE there are no spelling errors in your manuscript. Nothing screams amateur like spelling mistakes. Word even HIGHLIGHTS them for you...and it highlights them for me also so it's easy to see when someone hasn't gone the full distance for their story...
- Read the submission instructions carefully. If we ask for a Halloween story and you send us a story about some other holiday, that is an easy pass for us.
