Creature publishes up to four full-length works of feminist horror a year. Our definition of feminist horror is broad and inclusive, and we welcome writing that pushes boundaries.

We are interested in: unreliable narrators, unlikeable female characters, the monstrous, sharp critical essays and social commentary, swamp witches, your nightmares, dystopias, psychological suspense, unraveling minds, unraveling social constructs, possession, intersectionality, hybrid genres, metafiction, dark nights, and writing on sexuality/the body, gender, race, class, disability, technology, religion, and anything and everything that makes our spines tingle.

We prefer submissions in the range of 25,000–60,000 words (100–250 pages) and accept fiction, nonfiction, or genre-defying prose. Submissions should be either .docx or .pdf files, in 12 pt. font. We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere. Completed manuscripts only.
