SUBMISSIONS

Theme

Heebie Jeebies!

What do you think lurks inside your walls and under your bed once you’ve tucked yourself in? What kind of creatures lurk in the bowels, intestinal or otherwise, in your fridge and in your person? Sink back into the familiar recesses of a child’s nightmare-filled mind, or embrace new fears plaguing your adult life.

 

For our next issue, we want to experience the horrors that truly give you the heebie jeebies. We don’t just want to see stories referencing All Hallows’ Eve, we want your Christmas time visits from Krampus, everyday horrors—anything that makes the hair on your arms stand on end! Think creepy-crawlies, behemoth-like monsters, ghosts, ghouls, and all things downright horrifying!

 

Follow wherever your little black heart takes you!
