We are searching for stories that fall into the theme of Folk Horror.
Theme: Give me your rituals, your sacrifices. Give me your isolated communities and their backwards practices. Give me your old or forgotten gods and the creatures that men fear to speak of above a whisper. Give me idols, pagan practices, and harvest festivals. Think movies like The Apostle, Wicker Man, Midsommar, The Ritual, and Kill List.
Stories do not have to be set in modern day, or in our reality, but any fantasy submissions must be dark fantasy with an emphasis on the dark elements, and must have the intention to unsettle the readers.
We’re looking for stories that explore the dark side of human nature in interesting and foreboding settings. In folk horror, setting is just as important as characters. We want stories dripping with atmosphere. Transport us, and give us a front row seat to your nightmares.
