BLOG SUBMISSIONS

Our Blog Submissions for both short stories and flash fiction are temporarily closed due to the heavy submission levels we are currently experiencing! We are pleased to see so many writers sending us their work and are reading as fast as we can. We hope to re-open blog submissions by Fall of 2017, so check back. We currently have submissions for print anthologies open, you can view those submission calls HERE.

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 information to be linked.  See Guidelines below for subject lines. We prefer all submissions to be sent in .doc or .docx, and traditionally formatted.

 *SUSPENDED* Flash Fiction Submissions *SUSPENDED*

Instructions: Send your Freaky Flash Fiction submission to DearFunDead@gmail.com for consideration with “Flash Fiction Submission” as the subject line, but please read our guidelines below!

Submission Guidelines: Flash Fiction Friday submissions are open-ended as we publish these short stories as availability and budget allows. Currently, we are unable to accept reprints.

Word Count: 300 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 Flash Fiction submissions are generally sent within 3-6 weeks, though we do get swamped occasionally. Do be patient, we work as fast as our little eyes allow us!

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.

*SUSPENDED* Short Horror or Gothic Stories *SUSPENDED*

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. While we play catch up, please hold onto your pieces, or consider writing something for our Flash Fiction call or forthcoming print publications!

For those who have submitted blog short stories: We are currently playing catch up, and while we try to respond in a timely manner, please note that our blog submission calls state that it can be up to 6 weeks for a response. Do be patient, we’re working as fast as our little eyes can manage!
