Pixie Forest Publishing is seeking horror stories for our upcoming anthology

web site

Deadline: May 15th, 2021, 11:59 EST

Give us twists, terror, and excitement. Chill us to the bone. Give us nightmares. Don’t just scare us, create a plot and let us see your characters.

We are not looking for stories with graphic rape or paedophilia scenes. Violence and gore just for the sake of being violent and gory is not what we are wanting. If it is essential to the plot, include it. If not, leave it for a longer story.

Submissions are open until 11:59 EST on May 15th, 2021.

Stories should be between 1500 and 3000 words.

All submissions must be written in Shunn Format. Please remember to include the title, author’s name, word count, and contact information at the top of the first page. This is so the publisher can easily find you to contact you. Not including your email will guarantee no response.

You may submit up to two stories, but we will only accept one per-author. We are currently offering $10 for each accepted story.

We do accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know right away if your story is accepted elsewhere.

We are accepting reprints, as long as the story hasn’t been published within the past two years. This is to prevent our readers from seeing the same story they may have just read in a different anthology. Please tell us when and where your story was previously published.

The author must hold all rights to their stories before publishing with Pixie Forest. If your story is available online, we ask that you take it down before submitting.

We are going to read each submission as quickly as possible and make a judgement in one of the following ways:
The story isn’t suitable for whatever reason and is rejected.
The story is engaging but we feel it needs more work and will be returned with suggestions so the author has time to edit the story and resubmit, if they so wish.

If you don’t receive one of these responses within two weeks, you can assume your story has been put into our ‘maybe’ file and will be finally assessed after the submission window closes, after which it will either be accepted for publication or unfortunately turned down.
