The Maul (New Talent)
The Maul

Limited Demographic: writers under the age of eighteen

The Maul seeks to publish artists under the age of eighteen (considered a minor in the U.S.) on our website for free.

This magazine was conceived on the notion that it seems, if you want to love horror, you either have to relish in the spooky time of year when even Sesame Street has a Halloween episode, or you have to pull the band-aid off and somehow get super into splatterpunk.

This magazine strives to provide a place in between Stephen King and R.L. Stine. Horror that initiates the uninitiated, and gives a thrill to those looking for one. If you’re the type of person who loves horror, but only certain authors, or certain movies, if you’re someone who wants to love horror but doesn’t know where to look, try out a few stories here. Dip your toe in the lake of the thriller, we promise there’s less than a two percent chance something slimy will grab it.
