Klein, Gemma Files, Ramsey Campbell, Allyson Bird, Laird Barron, Nicole Cushing, Mark Samuels, and many more have produced work that we would love to see subjected to intelligent critical analysis and discussion.
  • Literary Horror Fiction from 750-6,000 words. Note: We are looking for original work inspired by Ligottian and/or related themes (regarding which, see the list on our main page).
  • Poetry at a length of no more than 50 lines, dealing with subjects and themes that fall within our area of interest.
  • Artwork that similarly addresses our subject matter.
The following authors and their work are of especial interest to Vastarien:

LENGTH: See the specific guidelines above for length requirements for different types of submissions. Additionally, in no case will a submission over 7,500 words be considered for publication without prior approval. Words subject to inclusion in the overall word count shall include the body of the submission and any explanatory footnotes; citations shall not be included in the overall word count.

PAYMENT AND RIGHTS: We pay 1 cent ($.01) per word for nonfiction and prose fiction, to a maximum of $50. Poetry pays $20 flat. Payment for artwork is negotiable. We purchase first serial and electronic rights. Upon publication, rights revert to the author, but we retain the right to continue selling back issues of the journal and the right to archive your work online.

HOW TO SUBMIT: Submission is via Submittable only:

ACCEPTABLE FILE TYPES: DOC, DOCx, and RTF

RESPONSE TIME: We aim to respond to submissions within two weeks (though final selection can take longer). If you have waited longer than 60 days, feel free to query us at vastarien@zoho.com, with QUERY plus the title of your submitted work in the subject line.

INTERNATIONAL AUTHORS: Vastarien welcomes submissions from authors outside the United States.

DIVERSITY STATEMENT: Vastarien believes in promoting a range of excellent writing and artwork from authors of diverse backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations. We encourage submissions from authors and artists traditionally underrepresented in horror and pieces that reflect these varying perspectives

VASTARIEN DOES NOT ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING:
  • Multiple submissions
  • Unsolicited reprints (defined as essays, articles, stories, or poems that have already appeared anywhere online or in any other published form)
