Trigger Warning: Body Horror

Posted by Randi on Friday, January 4, 2019

What they want:
Trigger Warning is an annual collection of stories geared toward making readers uncomfortable. This is the place to be gratuitous, to expound on the details that might make readers wish they could turn their eyes away. So long as you write well enough that they are unable to. Each year Trigger Warning will focus on a different theme.

In 2019 our theme is body horror! As per Wikipedia: Body horror or biological horror is a subgenre of horror which intentionally showcases graphic or psychologically disturbing violations of the human body. These violations may manifest through aberrant sex, mutations, mutilation, zombification, gratuitous violence, disease, or unnatural movements of the body. There you have it.
