As part of Women in Horror Month in February, Siren's Call eZine is dedicating their 7th issue to female writers in the genre! They're seeking "dark and edgy fiction" for their publication, with all works due to them by February 1, 2013. They accept short stories, flash fiction and poetry, see more submission requirements at their website. I know that's my perfect excuse to write a new story that might be banging around in my brain!
If you haven't heard of Women in Horror Month already, boy are you going to hear about it from me. From their website:
Every February, Women in Horror Recognition Month (WiHM) assists underrepresented female genre artists in gaining opportunities, exposure, and education through altruistic events, printed material, articles, interviews, and online support. WiHM seeks to expose and break down social constructs and miscommunication between female professionals while simultaneously educating the public about discrimination and how they can assist the female gender in reaching equality.WiHM is Hannah Neurotica's baby, and having written a few things for her zine/blog Ax Wound over the years and seeing how much love and energy she pours into her projects I'm happy to help promote it any way I can. There are going to be a lot of events and screenings and creative projects during February happening all over the country/the web, so if this is the type of thing that scratches your itch then watch for ways to get involved!
