Submission Guidelines

Submissions are currently closed! Stay tuned!


Tales to Terrify is a volunteer-run fan podcast featuring short horror, dark fantasy, and other disturbing fiction. We are looking for works between 1,000 and 9,000 words long.

All submissions are welcome and encouraged from writers of every race, religion, nationality, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

Feel free to challenge the definition of horror. Standard tropes and monsters are welcome just as much as blood, sex and gore. Scare us with your Gothic stories of haunted buildings, but do your best to honor the diversity within the genre. We want to be terrified by your concepts, by your implications, by your story’s possibilities. We want to read works that threaten to bleed into our reality and corrupt something as ordinary as a toaster.
Scare us. Make our breath stop and disturb our minds. Anything is allowed as long as it’s well-conceived and well-written.

Terrify the hell out of us with your tales.

What We Are NOT Looking For:

Stories that are not horror, dark fantasy or some form of disturbing fiction
Flash fiction (under 1,000 words)
Fan fiction
Sex is fine, but total erotica and torture porn are not

Manuscript Format
Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format
Double spaced

Please do not respond to rejection letters. However, you can submit a different story at that time if we are open for submissions.
