Call for submissions
Whirling Chair publishing is hosting its third annual ghost story night; a mixture of story-telling, films and live performances, all with a spooky theme. In the grand tradition of the master himself, MR James, we will be inviting our audience to cosy up just before Christmas to hear spine-tingling spooky tales read aloud.
We are looking for spooky stories that will chill the blood of our audience when read aloud; think MR James, Charles Dickens and Sheridan Le Fanu but in a modern style. Successful submissions will be read on the night and included in an e-book and hard copy anthology.
Length: Anything considered but preferably under 4,000 words. Remember, it needs to hold an audience’s attention when read aloud.
Payment: Royalties and one contributor copy
