Death in the Mouth Anthology Series

Limited Demographic: Authors who identify as BIPOC or a marginalized indigenous ethnicity

Weird and unsettling horrors no one has dreamt up before. Eerie manifestations of dread, grief, fear and anxiety. Violent embodiments of mania and displacements of faith. Visceral transgressions of the body and the mind.

If the above sounds too broad, that's on purpose. The limits are few and far between besides the indulgence of and meditation on horror and its adjacent states. We want to see stories written from places of vulnerability and boldness. Push the edges of your comfort zone.
