CLOSED TO SUBMISSIONS

Closing for Winter Break

As we do every year, we will be closing the window to submissions as of Monday, November 26, 2018, and will be open again to submissions as of 1/2/2019. The ONLY exception to this is this year's Deathlehem collection, which we will continue to look at until it is filled. There are currently 9 slots left, so if you have a Christmas-themed horror story, send it on in. See our Submissions page for details. 

Grave Marker Submissions Closed

When the submission window re-opens in January, we will be open to all submissions EXCEPT Grave Markers. We have filled the open slots through June and will not be considering new submissions until further notice. Keep an eye on the NEWS section or our Facebook page for when the Submission Window for Grave Markers re-opens.

Closing for the Holidays

As we do every year, we will be closing the submission window as of December 1st and re-opening it as of January 2nd, so if you have something ready and want to submit it, you have a just under two weeks to get it in. Otherwise, you will need to wait until next year.

Wishing everyone a Scary Christmas and Healthy New Year!

LITTLE MONSTERS IS CANCELLED

As much as we hate to do this, we are pulling the plug on the Little Monsters anthology. We had such high hopes for this collection, but it seems the Twilight phenomena has filtered down to the youngest generation. We had been hoping to receive truly scary stories, things that had kids waking up in the middle of the night screaming out for mommy and daddy, stories that, in their writing, would act like a sort of catharsis for the child. We did receive a couple of chilling stories, stories that surprised us given the age of the author, but sadly those were in the minority (and not nearly enough to fill a short story collection). The majority of the stories were cute, charming pieces that were more suited for Saturday morning cartoons.

Happy Holidays!

Thank you for your interest in Grinning Skull Press. We are currently closed to submissions and will re-open on January 2, 2017. We ask that you please resend your manuscript at that time.

Thank you in advance, and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,
The Editorial Staff
Grinning Skull Press
