Open Submissions

Bleeding Ink – a Collection
of Dark Tales

to thrill you,
confound you, and have you sitting at the edge of your seat.

While some stories
will leave you breathless

Some will
leave you in bloody stitches

And others will
scare you half-to-death.

This compilation of
paranormal, supernatural, dark and twisted works

Penned by some of
today’s most talented and witty writers

Will have you
looking over your shoulder

And turning off all
the lights


We welcome all writers interested in submittting their work for this anthology.  

Expected response time is under THREE months (please query if you have not received a response within 90 days).

We regret that, due to the volume of submissions, we are unable to give personal criticism.

Multiple submissions, simultaneous submissions and submissions to different categories are welcome.

Currently we are accepting the following word counts to be included in this anthology.

Short Story – 1,000 – 5,000

Flash Fiction – Under 1,000 words

50 Word Stories

Prose, Poetry & Micropoetry


Stories and poetry must include either dark, twisted, supernatural, fantasy, frightening, freaky or even shocking and funny elements. But the MOST important factor of all; is that the piece must give the reader pause.
