Calling for horror short stories written by authors with active Booktube/Authortube channels. I’m looking for a diverse group of authors for this first (possibly annual) anthology, so please don’t hesitate to submit.
Genre: Horror, including suspense, mystery, and weird fiction. Fantasy and Sci-fi okay as long as there are some horror elements and it fits the theme.
Theme: Local Haunts. Scary stories from your part of the world, including ghost stories, urban myths, legends, or wacky tales springing from your wicked imagination. Mature content is okay as long as it’s not too hardcore (email me with any specific questions at email@example.com).
Length: 1,000 – 7,000 words
Details: Please submit your story and other materials as separate attachments along with a link to your YouTube channel to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the standard submission format. For guidance see https://www.shunn.net/format/story.html.
Reprints okay, as long as you own the rights. English language only.
Pay: None. All proceeds will be donated to the literacy charity First Book. Each participant will receive a complimentary printed copy of the final anthology.
Deadline: March 15, 2020
Release Date: May/June 2020
Cameron Roubique will be doing the book cover design.
