Tips from the October Submissions...

  • Don’t write dialogue phonetically when trying to capture an accent.

  • This is a gay-themed horror anthology. We’re looking for horror tales with a strong queer subtext – not straight horror stories with a gay character or two thrown in to meet a quota.
  • Horror sometimes demands a suspension of belief – not a suspension of logic.
  • Read your dialogue aloud. If it sounds like something out of a poorly-scripted gay porn film, consider a screenwriting gig in the adult film industry.
  • In our follow-up email to your query, we direct you to some formatting guidelines. Be a peach and follow them?
