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 art and written pieces to feature on our sites!

Please note that we are only accepting original, previously unpublished works at this time.

Magazine Submissions

Our next issue will be released on May 14th, 2019. We are currently accepting Spring-themed submissions of short fiction (between 5,000 and 7,000 words), poetry, and artwork (any medium.) If chosen, your work will be included in the Spring Issue on the website and in an ebook collection available for purchase on the site (all proceeds go towards buying Dusk & Shiver a domain name!) 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 Spring Issue submissions is April 13th, 2019. We will contact you by April 15th with our final decisions.

Photography & Flash Fiction Submissions

In addition to submissions for our Spring Issue, we are also currently accepting photography and flash fiction submissions to feature on our social media pages! Unlike the Spring Issue submissions, these submissions are not limited to a theme; anything reflecting the dark fantasy and/or horror genres is welcome!

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.

Flash fiction submissions should be under 1,000 words, and submitted to us as an email attachment to duskandshiver.mag@gmail.com in Microsoft Word, Times New Roman size 12 font. (Plain text only, please; no clipart or embellishments.)
Please include the word ‘Submission’ in your subject line.

Photography submissions should be submitted as an email attachment to duskandshiver.mag@gmail.com in .png or .jpeg format 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.

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.

Reviews Submissions

Finally, Dusk & Shiver is looking to feature reviews on our Tumblr and 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!
