Coffin Bell - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Dark times call for dark literature.

Coffin Bell is a new quarterly online journal of dark literature. Call for submissions for our 2018 inaugural issue–seeking poetry, flash fiction, short stories, and creative nonfiction that explore dark themes. When we say “dark themes,” we don’t necessarily mean traditional horror. Send us your political horrors, dark political thrillers, your waking nightmares. We want to read what constitutes horror to you in 2018. Surprise us. Make us think in a new way. Give us a new fear. Make our skin crawl.
