The Shadow Booth is currently closed for fiction submissions. Thank you to everyone who submitted during our January submissions period - we hope to get back to you by the end of February.

We will open for submissions again in the spring. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for updates.


We are currently looking for non-fiction pieces for the Shadow Booth website. We're open to anything about the weird and eerie in fiction, from book reviews to short essays. We'd also be open to pieces about folklore, as it relates to the weird, and folk horror. We are not open to submissions of film essays or reviews - the written word only, please. In the first instance, please email with a short pitch for your article and a brief bio. There is no payment for online publication.
