Call for Submissions – The Audient Void

Image may contain: text

Obadiah Baird, Editor and Publisher, has this to say:

Since the fifth issue of The Audient Void: A Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy is now out we are opening submissions for issue #6. We are looking for quality works of poetry and short fiction.

Poetry should be Weird or darkly fantastical with strong imagery. We pay $.35 a line with a $5 minimum payable upon publication.

For short fiction our tastes are broad and we will consider anything with Weird, horrific or fantastical elements. We will consider any length work but will be much less likely to publish stories over 5,000 words. Our rate is $5 per thousand words payable upon publication. First time publication only, no reprints please.

To submit please send your work as a .doc, .docx or .rtf file to and be sure to include a header with your name and email address. We do not accept simultaneous submissions and ask that you wait for our response before submitting elsewhere. The submission deadline is May 31st, please do not inquire about your submission before that deadline and understand that it may take some time to follow up on all submissions after the deadline has passed.

I very much look forward to reading everyone’s work!

Please keep in mind that Weird doesn’t mean purely strange or odd. Weird is a genre unto itself, so please be sure that the stories you submit fit our guidelines.

We look forward to reading your stories!
