WE WANT YOUR WIERD.

What we’re looking for

Well-written, literary ‘weird’ tales. Short stories that have a beginning, a middle and an end. This will not be an anthology of horror stories.

Stories must have a touch of ‘the weird’ – how you interpret that is up to you - and can include elements of the following: surrealism, horror, humour, sci-fi, fantasy, sex and romance, magic realism, mystery, fairy and folk tale. We want a mix of stories that will appeal to readers who don’t necessarily read genre fiction. We want stories that have an emotional depth, that remind us how full of wonder life can be (although that doesn’t mean they have to be uplifting).
