We are always open for submissions in all categories. Email us at with a pitch or draft (please send as a Word or Google doc for text submissions; jpg/png for Postcard submissions), any images you’d like included, how you’d like to be credited, a short bio in third person, and any links for promotion (blog, portfolio, etc.).

“Our creative touchstones at APOCALYPSE CONFIDENTIAL are authors like Harlan Ellison, Shirley Jackson, Clive Barker, and Jim Thompson; authors who, above all, pushed boundaries.” — fiction editor, D.A. Wohler

Simultaneous submissions are permitted, except for special presentations, though please let us know if your submission is accepted elsewhere. Reprints and excerpts are permitted as well, though we prefer to publish original work.

“To paraphrase Frank O’Hara: Almost no poets are better than the movies. Send us poems that are better than the movies.” — poetry editor, Tom Will

We are unable to pay for submissions at this time, but writers retain full ownership of their work. Most published fiction submissions fall within the 4k-6k word count. For poetry, please limit submissions to no more than 5 pages.

We are OPEN for submissions for our GAIAHORROR special; deadline: April 7. For further information on this year’s special presentations, click here.

We are currently open for manuscript submissions as well.
