Folk Horror continues to stalk sunlit fields and shadowed groves with its grafting of the mundane and the sublime. The pervasive themes of isolation, paranoia, depravity, loss of individuality, and rustic madness captivate and terrify audiences.
Nosetouch Press is pleased to conjure up FIENDS IN THE FURROWS II: More Tales of Folk Horror, a call for submissions for Folk Horror from around the world—from Britain and Ireland, to continental Europe, to North and South America, Africa, and Asia.
We encourage writers to continue to explore the wilderness of Folk Horror, while honoring the elemental essence of this subgenre’s tangled, grasping roots.
Send your best original Folk Horror stories of 4,000 to 8,000 words. Submissions that are chosen will be paid $.04 a word. No poems or reprints, please.
Email entries to email@example.com .doc or .rtf format • Please state “FIENDS 2” in the subject line.
Submission Period: November 1, 2019–January 7, 2020
