Submissions

Stormy Island Publishing presents a frightful Call for Submissions!

 

Your story should be between 500 and 3,000 words and edited to the best of your ability.

Stories must have a supernatural theme (ghosts, spirits, demons, hauntings, anything that goes bump in the night.)
Submissions are open now until 11:59 p.m. September 13, 2019 EST. (We are looking for an October publication date.)

We will accept only one submission per author.

Simultaneous submissions will not be accepted. Previously published submissions will not be accepted. Submissions should not be available for viewing online during the submission/publication process or for 6 months after publication.

Submissions should only have mild, non-graphic violence, no explicitly sexual/erotic scenes, and “bad” language should not be used excessively but may be used in limited capacity.

To avoid rights issues, no living public figures should be used as characters, no fan-fiction involving proprietary characters, and no song lyrics. However, passing references to these are fine.

All submitting authors will be notified of our decision within 2 weeks of closing date. If your submission is chosen, you will receive a full publishing contract outlining the details of our agreement. Upon signing, Stormy Island Publishing retains exclusive rights until six months after publication.

As payment, each author will receive a paperback copy of the anthology after publication.
