This October, we will have a special themed issue and we need your submissions. The theme is “Wings.” Why wings? “Pigeons from Hell.””The Birds”. “The Raven.” These are only a few tales that have included disquieting winged entities. We want to continue the tradition.
From birds to bats, and Mi-Go to the Mothman, we are looking for short stories, flash fiction, and poetry that flaps and terrifies. Stories should adhere to the general guidelines set by Innsmouth Magazine (See here for word count max, pay rates and the like). We want Weird fiction, we want odd and disquieting tales, we want beauty and grotesqueries.
Reprints will be considered, but, as usual, we ask that you notify us if it is a reprint and where it appeared. Please note we are much more interested in reprints that are not currently available online.
Regarding poetry: We don’t usually hold open submissions for poetry. We will consider unsolicited poems for this issue. Send no more than one and follow the guidelines set by Innsmouth Magazine (cover letter, etc.) Poems will be paid at a flat rate of $10.
Submissions for the Wings issue are open from March 25 to July 25. The issue will be released in time for Halloween. Please make sure to label all stories as “Wings: Title of Story.”
WE WILL RESPOND TO ALL SUBMISSIONS IN AUGUST.
