Open for Nothing’s Sacred Vol. 4
From: January 26th – February 28th
UPDATE: As of 23:59 EST February 3, 2018, submissions for short stories are closed. All other areas for this call will remain open until further notice or until the posted date of our original post. We realize this is short notice for closing the call for short stories; however, due to an overwhelming response of short story submissions, we have more than enough submissions.
Projected Release Date: October 1, 2018
Nothing’s Sacred is Jack of No Trades Productions’ horror magazine. It is made up of original short fiction, poetry, articles, book reviews, two sentence short stories, and comics. As said in the magazines’ namesake, nothing is off limits. The horror within can range from subtle to grotesque, psychological to physical, dark to full out terror so long as it is character driven. Theme wise, Nothing’s Sacred is relatively open outside of distasteful stories of rape, the degradation and/or humiliation of women, and child porn of any kind.
What we’re looking for:
Fiction – 3,000 word max. NO REPRINTS Pay rate $.05 per word.
Articles – Should be related to or about the horror genre. 2000 word max. Pay rate $.05 per word.
Poetry – 3 poems max per submission. 250 words max per poem. Pay rate $10 per poem.
Two Sentence Fiction – Just as implied, these stories are extremely short. We will consider up to five submissions per author. Pay rate $5 per story.
Comics – We first introduced comics into Nothing’s Sacred in Vol. 3 to include a humorous element to our layout. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST TO BE CONSIDERED! Comics should include elements of horror in them, and may be either a full page or a banner size (as you would find in your Sunday paper), strip. Pay rate $90 per comic.
Pay out for all material: Upon publication
