Daunted by all those prestigious competitions? Then here’s one just for you.
A forthcoming anthology by Iron Press, COLD IRON, is seeking submissions from writers from the UK and Ireland of up to two previously unpublished ghost stories between 1,500 and 3,000 words. Closing date is September 30th.
Entries must be submitted by post only. Writers of accepted stories will be paid £50 and receive a free copy of the anthology. There is no entry fee.
Submissions should be traditional – that is, not wider paranormal tales – and Iron Press subscribe to M R James’s view that ghost stories work best ‘set close to the readers’ own time’.
