206 Word Stories
Bag of Bones Press




Description
There are 206 bones in the human body. We want a word per bone. From you.

We're seeking 206 word pieces of horror/dark fiction on any topic, in any style, as long as it sits in the horror/dark fiction genre. (Word count does not include title.)

Elements of fantasy, sci-fi, and any other genre are fine, as long as the main theme is horror.


This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
