Submit

Dusk and Shiver Magazine is an indie, community-based publication. We are not currently able to pay for submissions, but we are looking for all manner of dark fantasy and horror pieces to feature in our publication and on our sites! There are no submission fees.

Please note that we are only accepting original, previously unpublished works at this time.

Magazine Submissions

Our next issue, “Ghost Stories,” will be released on November 14th, 2019. We are currently accepting Autumn-themed submissions of short fiction (between 5,000 and 7,000 words), flash fiction, poetry, and artwork (any medium.) If chosen, your work will be included in the Summer Issue on the website and in an ebook collection available for purchase on the site (all proceeds go towards Dusk & Shiver web hosting!) Accepted submissions may also appear in part or in their entirety on any of our social media pages at any time, for the purpose of promoting the issue. Full credit will always be given to the artist and/or writer.

Please proofread before submitting. In order to protect the creative integrity of our submitters, we will only edit for basic grammar mistakes and obvious typos. All edits are at the discretion of the editors.

Fiction and poetry submissions should be emailed to duskandshiver.mag@gmail.com as a Microsoft Word attachment in Times New Roman size 12 font (plain text only, please; no clip art or embellishments.)
Please include the word ‘Submission’ in your subject line.

Artwork submissions should be emailed to duskandshiver.mag@gmail.com as either .png or .jpeg format attachments in a size appropriate for email (if it’s too big to be emailed, it’s too big for us!)
Please include the word ‘Submission’ in your subject line.

The deadline for all Autumn Issue submissions is November 1st, 2019. We will contact you by November 4th with our final decisions.

Fairy Tale Anthology

Submissions for the Across the Faded Fields fairy tale anthology competition are now CLOSED. For more information, please see the Anthology page.

Reviews Submissions

Finally, Dusk & Shiver is looking to feature reviews on our WordPress Blog! These can be reviews of anything in the dark fantasy and horror genres: books, movies, television shows, musicals, albums, video games, etc.

If accepted, your work will be posted in full on our sites; it may also appear in part or in its entirety at any time on any of our other social media pages for the purpose of promotion. Full credit will always be given to the author.

Submitted reviews should all be approximately 1,500 words and sent as an email attachment to duskandshiver.mag@gmail.com in Microsoft Word, Times New Roman size 12 font. (Plain text only, please; no clip art or embellishments.)
Please include the word ‘Submission’ in your subject line.

There is currently no deadline for these submissions; we would like to continue featuring this type of work on our social media pages throughout the year. We will notify you within three days as to whether or not your submission has been accepted.


Thank you, everyone! We are very excited to see what you come up with!
