'three stories' is a single-author collection of (you guessed it) three short horror stories.
all profits from the collection will go to a charity chosen by the selected author. Submissions will be open for one week only!
Submit three short stories up to a total of 7,000 words. This could be three stories which are exactly 2,333 words each or it could be one 6,000 word story and two 500 word stories - it's up to you!
We are only accepting one author this time, so don't be discouraged if you aren't chosen! Stories previously submitted to one of our calls are welcomed.
Previously published stories are fine (encouraged even!), as long as you retain the right to republication. If work is previously published, please include that information so that I can give credit.
Format however you want, I don't mind!
We are not looking for poetry or art this time.
All work must be your own.
I'm asking for the non-exclusive right to publish your stories in print and digital format. You will retain all of your rights and will be free to republish elsewhere.
You will receive 2 contributor copies of the collection, and all profits beyond our outgoings will be donated to your chosen charity. I will be as transparent as possible throughout this process and will provide evidence that this money is being donated where we agreed it would be!
You are able to pick the charity you want to support, within reason. (Meaning if you want the money to go to a charity which does not align with Ram Eye's values e.g. a charity with a homophobic reputation, I will ask you to reconsider.)
Submissions will be accepted through a Google Form - check back when submissions open for the link.
What we like... Everything we publish is something we love, so the best way to determine our tastes is to take a look at our previous issues, Middle of Nowhere and Little Terrors.
Generally, we enjoy all forms and subgenres of horror, weird fiction and dark fiction. Specifically, we're big fans of folk horror, quiet horror, and literary horror, but really as long as it's somewhat dark, unsettling and/or spooky, we want to read it, so don't self reject!
