Creature publishes book-length feminist horror. 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. 

You may submit manuscripts in the range of 20,000–90,000 words; 40,000–60,000 is the sweet spot. Submissions should be either .docx or .pdf files. We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere. BIPOC writers are encouraged to submit—we are looking for you!

Our next open submission period is February 1st to March 31st, 2024.
