Deimos is a semi-annual horror magazine accepting all genres, with online publication and a limited print run. Submission period for the inaugural issue is tight: the month of October, and that’s it. Publication is slated for mid-December.
Besides the general theme of horror, issues of Deimos will have a sub-theme. For the inaugural issue, in honor of our mythological and celestial namesake, the theme is “Dread.” What differentiates fear from dread? That is for you to expound on. Submissions— art, prose, and verse— that best exemplify the theme and standards of quality we’re looking for will make the final cut.
Deimos is run entirely out of pocket by Udon Shop staff. If you wish to submit, please email your submission, along with a cover letter, here.
In addition, Deimos is looking for a cover design for this issue. The winning selection for the issue cover will receive a $500 prize, in addition to a contributor’s copy. Art submissions for the magazine are all considered for the cover contest.
Text submissions should be in PDF format. Image submissions are acceptable in JPG and PNG format, with minimum 300dpi resolution for the file.
Accepted contributors will receive a print copy. Print copies will otherwise be for sale in December. Remember— submissions open October 1st, and run through October 31st. We look forward to your submissions.
