HOUSE OF HORROR zine is currently in the process of putting together it’s third issue. A 24-page, full-colour, 8.5x11 zine, HOUSE OF HORROR showcases work by and for horror fans with a critical eye. The zine is edited, printed, and distributed by Laura Ellyn. For more ideas on typical content of the zine, feel free to peruse the HOUSE OF HORROR tumblr blog, particularly the reviews, essays, and art posted there.
The theme of the third issue is MONSTERS. Send us your essays, fiction, poetry, and art on the theme of monsters in horror! Whatever your monster feelings are, we want to see them. All reactions to the theme will be considered. Pitches without a finished submission will be accepted ONLY WITH an accurate completion date.
Submissions that are accepted to the print zine are paid at a rate of $15 per piece, upon acceptance of the piece, via paypal or cheque, as well as one complimentary copy of the zine upon its release. I know this is not much compared to other publications; consider the payment a “latte stipend” to pay for your coffee while you work on the piece.
The deadline for submissions is September 6th, 2014 at midnight. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out one week after that. Submissions can be e-mailed in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Images should be sent as a high-resolution (at least 300 dpi) PDF or JPEG to the same address.
Reminder that we are still accepting submissions until the due date - thank you to everyone who has submitted so far, this is looking like it’s going to be a great issue!
I’ve received a few questions about the theme, tone, etc of work that we’re looking for and I highly encourage people who are thinking of submitting to check out Issue One (SURVIVAL) and Issue Two (GEOGRAPHY) on Issuu.com for free! But in case you’re still struggling, here are some things to think about:
I hope this helps spur your creativity as you continue to send us submissions for our MONSTERS issue! If you have any questions about your submission, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at ellehumour at gmail dot com.
