Tell-Tale Press now has submissions open to SHORT STORIES ONLY for at least one year, from July 1, 2019 through July 1, 2020. We plan to read through submissions as they are received and choose stories to publish on the Tell-Tale Press website online as they are selected. The stories may also be selected for digital and/or print anthologies in the future.Length: 500-5,000 words
The story must fall in the genre of fantasy, horror, mystery/crime, and/or science fiction. There is no specific theme at this time.
Some examples of what will be considered are crossover work, such as sci-fi horror or horror western, and subgenres such as historical fiction, steampunk, dark fantasy, action/adventure, dystopian future, gothic, comedy, new weird, and supernatural. True crime is okay, as long as the research is sound. Stories based on true events are okay as long as names are changed.
Payment: $5 for 500 to 1000 words; $10 for 1000 to 3000 words; $25 for 3000 to 5000 words.
