The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Murder Park After Dark



Description
Original horror or dark fantasy stories of no more than 2000 words. Sci-fi is also welcome so long as it’s scary. We don’t have a strong preference for any particular style or subgenre, but we do prefer writing that is more literary than pulp, that achieves its scares from impacts to fully realized characters as opposed to splatter, gore, or shock value. We would rather be unsettled than grossed out.
