    Haunted Waters Press Print Publications [1 to 4 US cents per word, $20 poetry]

    This post is for 2018 calls for submissions. Please visit our updated 2019 post here:

    Haunted Waters Press
    is open to all writers, themes, and most genres. We seek fiction of 10,000 words or less, flash fiction, Penny Fiction, and poetry of any length. Multiple entries, simultaneous submissions, and previously published works permitted in many listings. (See individual listings for details.) Accepting submissions for summer online publication and fall print publication through August 31, 2018.

    Haunted Waters Press is a paying market for print publication. We offer Grand Prize and cash payments equivalent to semi-professional to professional rates. All competition entries are considered for paid print publication. (While online publication in SPLASH! offers no monetary payment, all works published via SPLASH! are eligible for future offers of paid print publication.)

    Fiction/Flash Fiction: 1 to 4 US cents per word
    Penny Fiction (18 Word Micro-stories): $3.00 per Lovely Penny
    Poetry: $20 per published work
    Grand Prize Competition Payments (One each for fiction, flash fiction, and poetry): $250 each plus Featured Author Interview accompanying work.

    For online SPLASH! publication and Penny Fiction submissions, we offer alternating no fee reading periods from January though July. We review the first 200 submissions per month. We suggest submitting early. Reading and entry fees for other competitions and calls for submissions vary from free to a nominal reading fee. Financial hardship should never silence a story that needs to be told. If you cannot afford a reading fee where one is required, please contact us for alternate arrangements.

    Thank you so much for considering Haunted Waters Press. We look forward to reading your work.
