We are delighted and astounded and overwhelmed by the number of blog submissions we receive on a daily basis. Due to the volume, we have decided to temporarily suspend submissions while we play catch up on the current overload. We expect we will be re-opening Blog Horror & Gothic Short Story submissions sometime in May. In the mean time, please hold onto your pieces, or consider writing something for our Flash Fiction call!
All BLOG submissions must be sent to DearFunDead@gmail.com to be considered for publication on FunDeadPublications.com. Please include your name, address, and phone number, as well as website and social media information to be linked. Make the subject line “FunDead Blog Submission”. We prefer all submissions to be sent in .doc or .docx, and traditionally formatted.
Short Horror or Gothic Stories Instructions: Please submit your story to DearFunDead@gmail.com with the subject line “FunDead Blog Submission”. Submission Guidelines:Short horror and gothic story submissions are open-ended as we publish these short stories as availability allows. Word Count: 4000 Words, or less Content Requirements: We like dark fiction, gothic fiction, horror, horror-comedy, ghost stories, and unique story-telling. We enjoy both modern and historical fiction from any perspective. The subject matter is your choice, as long as it is dark! Payment: Accepted submissions will be awarded payment in the way of $5 via PayPal upon publication. It may not be much, but we are a small and humble press just getting our start and it’s all we can offer at this time apart from our excellent social media promotion and beyond. If your submission is accepted, your website and social media accounts will be linked on the blog below your story. We will also tag your social media (when possible) as we share your published piece on our own social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Format: Format should be in standard manuscript format and submitted as .doc or .docx. Unfortunately, we cannot accept reprints at this time. Please include a brief cover letter introducing yourself along with your submission, including links you’d like us to share if we choose to publish your piece on our blog. Response Time: Responses for BLOG submissions are generally sent within 3-6 weeks. Diversity Statement: We at FunDead Publications believe diversity is what makes fiction wonderful and unique and we welcome submissions from writers of every race, religion, nationality, gender, and sexual orientation.
