SUBMISSIONS

DIRT IN THE SKY // August 15th // Slots: 2-3

2 cents per word + contributor copy (additional copies available at cost), 2-5k words, Reprints welcome, the author retains all rights

Dirt in the Sky is the new horror mini anthology from Filthy Loot focusing on juxtapositions. We’re looking for stories about the haves and have-nots, but also seeding elements of genres like alt-lit with body horror, or dirty realism with transgressive horror. Heady themes in the sugarcoating of genre fiction. Since I only said it 3 other times in this paragraph, this is horror.

We’re looking for things that are general, but very specific, so if you have any questions, please just contact us.

What we’re not looking for: sci-fi/fantasy, experimental, torture porn, anything too humorous or bizarro.
