50+ Writing Markets For June 2022

Here is a list of over 50 writing markets, mostly horror writing markets, paying up to $350.

Some of them have a short deadline so be quick and don't miss out.

It's a great list to cosy up with this weekend and get some writing and publishing done.

Write plenty and enjoy. :)

How you interpret this theme is largely up to you. Think tales of the Old West, the Wild West, the Weird West; perhaps the tumultuous periods around it: the First Nations Wars, the California Gold Rush, the American Civil War. Please note that your story does not have to be set on the American frontier; we’re also interested in stories which feature other untamed, dangerous locales. If you can offer us a terrifying tale set in the badlands of Mexico, the Australian Outback, the Saharan Desert, or even the dunes of Mars, we’d be keen to read it. Primarily, we’re looking for tales of the odd and the macabre, of wildernesses and the savagery they might (or did) contain, or similar horror stories along these lines.

Dracula Beyond Stoker
Stories with Dracula himself as the main focus. His name is on the cover of the book, but he’s not the star of the show. Let’s change that.

What was he doing prior to the novel? What was he doing when we didn’t see him in the novel? Did he survive? Expand on one of the many movie adaptations. Give us an alteranate take. The canvas is blank, spatter it red.
Word Count: 1500-5000 words
Deadline: 15th June 2022
Payment: 5cents per word.

Tales from the Monoverse
We want to expand on the concept of the Monochrome Noir mystery/thriller series by opening it up to multiple genres, and are looking for authors to join us on this unique journey. 
Short-stories, 4k – 6k words in length, set in the greater Monochrome Noir mythology/concept, where the world is forever trapped in the black & white color scheme of old movies & photographs. In this grayscale world, items of color are extremely uncommon. These stories can be devoid of color entirely, or can just reference colors tangentially. Hell, a rare item of color could even be the main focus. Your tales do not need to take place in the past.
Payment: $15 and 1 paperback copy of Tales from the Monoverse upon release. Contributing authors will have a biography section at the end of the book.
Submission Deadline: August 30th 2022.

37 Themed Submission Calls for June 2022
These are calls and contests for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Some of the themed calls are: tender; generations; incredible journeys; myths and fairy tales; outsiders; deadly women of the sea; and the still of winter.
