Horror Films Don’t Create Fear. They Release It.
— Wes Craven

What We Want

Essays! NOT short stories. We want anecdotes on being a horror fan, analysis of films or books, and generally what horror means to you. If you are an artist; whether you sell on Etsy or make sculptures - we also want you to submit!

For artists, along with including at least four high resolution photos of your work, we do ask that you submit an artist statement or short essay on your piece. After all, you would still get paid per word (and the benefit of showcasing all your shop links).
