Call for Submissions: 'Dreams from the Witch House'


The deadline to the open call for submissions has been extended to 22 February 2015 to coincide with the anthology's official Indiegogo campaign launch on 27 January 2015.

I will be editing an anthology of Lovecraftian fiction written by women, to be published by Dark Regions Press in 2015.

We have already solicited a selection of established authors to contribute work to the collection. As of 1 October 2014, I am officially accepting unsolicited submissions for an open call period that ends 31 January 2015.

The only set requirement for the anthology is that all submissions must be written by women. Submissions from international, multi-cultural and LGBT/GSD perspectives are encouraged, as this collection will aim to present the diversity of voices within the field of Lovecraftian fiction. All stories must be submitted in English.

There is no restriction on setting, so don't feel like you have to remain within the 1920's/1930's - far future stories, contemporary, steampunk, psychological, horror, fantasy/sf and, of course, historical settings are all welcome.

I am open to a wide interpretation of 'Lovecraftian', but I'm not looking for pastiche work. Nuanced weirdness welcome, as is the overtly strange.

Word count for submissions is set between 2000 and 10 000 words. If you would like to submit something shorter or longer, please query.

No simultaneous submissions or reprints. 

Payment for accepted stories will be 5c per word up to 5k, then 3c per word over 5k.

Email submissions in Word .doc or .rtf file, formatted to standard manuscript specifications to:

witchesdreams AT gmail DOT com

I look forward to reading your stories!

We have collected a feast of authors to delight and unease readers through stories taking various perspectives on the themes and philosophies of the Lovecraftian universe.

The anthology will also have an open call period (details forthcoming), as one of our aims is to include new voices that will shape the genre in exciting new ways.

Work has been solicited to "Dreams from the Witch House" from the following authors:

  • Caitlin R. Kiernan
  • Joyce Carol Oates
  • Gemma Files
  • Lois H. Gresh
  • Storm Constantine
  • Sonya Taaffe
  • Molly Tanzer
  • Karen Heuler
  • Liz Williams
  • Tamsyn Muir
  • Amanda Downum
  • Nancy Kilpatrick
  • Elizabeth Bear
  • Sarah Monette

The anthology will be published in a deluxe lettered hardcover edition, a signed and numbered hardcover edition and trade paperback. It will be a thing of beauty.
