WHAT THEY'RE SEEKING:


Strange Wilds Press is looking for stories cemented in the taiga biome for its first anthology. I love stories that are character-driven, gothic, gloomy, and full of grief or existential horror. The idea of the lost and the unknown nestled in those deep, dark woods is something I get really excited about. Some other things I like include: eco-horror, supernatural, creature, cult, ghost, and cosmic horror.


PLEASE DON'T SEND:


Extreme, splatterpunk and slasher. I will not accept anything that involves sexual assault. I will not accept anything with gratuitous animal violence. I understand some may be necessary to tell a creature horror story but I do not need excessive violence represented. I will not accept stories that promote hate, bigotry, antisemitism, transphobia, racism, or sexism. I DO NOT accept AI generated content.
