Dia de los Muertos Anthology


We are looking for well-crafted, original stories from 2000 to 5000 words which involve Dia de los Muertos in some way. Other than that, subject matter is fairly open. There is a lot of room for creativity here and we want stories which explore this theme in a variety of ways. We like stories which are more literary in nature, but we welcome elements of fantasy and/or subtle horror, magical realism, etc. We are not looking for excessive blood and gore for this antho, although we are not opposed to some blood if done properly and appropriate to the story.


Format/Submission Guidelines:

Please use a 12pt. font such as Times New Roman or Courier New; manuscripts should be double-spaced and sent as an RTF attachment.

Send your very best stories to:

muertosantho at yahoo dot com.

The subject field should read SUBMISSION followed by the name of your story. Please include a brief intro, as we like to know who you are, and don't forget to include your contact information--and pseudonym if applicable.

Also send a brief author bio along with your story.

No simultaneous submissions. Please wait until we respond before sending another story.


Currently we are offering $25.00(US) flat rate + 1 contributor copy.
