Submission Guidelines

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN UNTIL AUGUST 31st!

This is a modern ‘Penny Dreadful’ and a dip into the darker things that lurk behind us; a place where we can meet and share those ghouls alike, after all, it’s no fun being frightened, hiding under the bed, unless, of course, you are the one doing the haunting…

Please submit unpublished ghost stories & tales of the macabre, the oh-so-strange (no longer than 3,500 words – no minimum) as a WORD document. Artists and Illustrators please email with a sample of your work before submitting. Be as creative and ghoulish as you like but please read the blurb on the ‘About’ section to see what we like. Please send via email as an attachment to Rebecca Parfitt at:

editor@theghastling.com

The editor works alone in the small hours in a tiny room in the top of ‘Ghastling Towers’- unless she is interested in your work, you will not hear from her.  Don’t be disheartened, you are always welcome to try again.

Please note: It is regrettable that we still don’t have the money to pay our contributors – we can only pay in hauntings. This is however something we hope to change and supporting the mag by purchasing a copy will go a long way towards making this happen.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Any questions please get in touch.

Best wishes,

Rebecca Parfitt
