We are looking for intriguing stories centered on animals that at some point were used in animal testing. We prefer stories that end in a rescue. So put on those thinking caps, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Genre is open: horror, sci-fi, speculative, literary, even comedy or romance. If it’s well-crafted and follows the theme, we’d love to consider it.

Monsters Among Us

What they want:
The monsters we have come to know and love take a backseat as we delve into the darkest, most hideous depths of a monster that has taken center stage as of late–HUMANS. I’m looking for ‘psychological horror’, horror that comes from within.

There lies a darkness in us all–what are some of the scariest atrocities humans are capable of doing? What ‘demons’ lurk in their heads, causing them to do the things they do? Humans can also create monsters out of humans…. Tell me “how”–the possibilities are endless. I want to see how ugly the human race can really get.
Deadline: November 30, 2016
Length: Up to 7,000 words
Payment: 3 cents/word

DeadLights Magazine

What they want:
DeadLights Magazine is inspired by the history of Horror Fiction. For many, the immediate association when one says ‘Horror Fiction’ is the Horror Novel, thanks, in part, to legends like Stephen King, Peter Straub, and Shirley Jackson (among many others). What surprises most, we find, is that the history of horror fiction is deeply wound around shorter works of fiction. Much has been done in the Horror genre when it comes to the short story, the poem, and flash fiction. There is still much left to do.
Length: Flash Fiction (300-700 words), Short Fiction (2,000-7,000 words), Poetry (up to 1 page, single spaced)
Payment: $50 for short stories, $10 for flash/poetry + PDF contributor copy
