REMINDER: Seeking Submissions From BIPOC Horror Authors

Let's give 'em something to talk about

We made this announcement back in July of 2022, but wanted to post a reminder! So, what are we looking for? We are keeping our ears and eyes open for full-length horror manuscripts from the BIPOC community.

This material would see a 2025 release.

On September 29th and 30th of 2023, you will be able to submit a logline (25 words max) along with a three-sentence synopsis (250 words max) and manuscript word count to:

Pitches sent outside that window will be deleted immediately, unopened and unread.

Manuscripts must be completed in order to submit, as authors will be contacted in very quick turnaround. Pitches will be read over the first week of October and any manuscript requests will be made on the 9th of October. If you are not contacted on the 9th of October, then we have passed on your pitch.

If you aren’t ready, do not submit. We cannot stress this enough.

No collections.

No reprints.

Works can be as short as 40K and up to 90K words. These are firm numbers. Do not send anything shorter or longer, it will not be considered.

Submission MUST include a logline, synopsis, and word count. Any submission missing these items will not be considered.


This call is for consideration to be published at either Rooster Republic Press or Strangehouse Books. We want people to go as big and as wild as their heart desires. Big, weird Horror. Get as nasty or as wholesome as you want. Horror is a big umbrella and we are looking forward to seeing what you dream up!
