Submit Here

The Little Writing Workshop of Horrors publishes poetry, creative writing, fiction and non-fiction.


I read all the works I receive as submissions. If accepted, they are posted on a first come, first serve basis. If I feel, however, it is not a good fit for our publication, it will not be published on the “Little Writing Workshop of Horrors.”

While rejections are not sent out, you will know between one to three days if your submission has been accepted as you will see it on the site. If rejected, please do not resubmit the same piece.

Online submissions and literary works published on personal websites/blogs are often seen as online publications, and would be considered previously published through the perspective of literary journals, magazines, and editors. This is just a clarifying note before you decide to submit. It does not mean, however, I do not accept previously published pieces or literature.

Acceptances depend on the writing content and what we are looking for in the workshop of horrors. Note: I will not accept submissions titled under anonymous. Please use a name or pen name.

I accept:

  • Previously published as well as unpublished pieces
  • Poems
  • Stories
  • Novels (but they will divided into chapters if it is past a certain amount of words)
  • Novellas

There are two places on this website that I will happily accept blog or post promotion. The first is through my submissions link for the “Little Writing Workshop of Horrors Submission Stand.” You can promote yourself through this comment section, or you can add a link to your blog or a singular post through my submission form in the author’s note section when submitting a piece for consideration. If accepted, it will be posted along with your submission. The second is through the “Poetry Corner” where you can promote yourself and engage in discussions.

If a submission is against the rules or guidelines, it will not be accepted as a submission.

A few things to mention:

  1. Authors will always be credited for their submissions (obviously).
  2. First come, first serve.
  3. If you would like to have your piece removed from the blog, just let me know through this comment section, and it will be taken down at your request.

You can submit your work here.

  2. When the sky
    seems pitch dark
    And the black clouds
    Do finally part
    May the sun
    Shine down
    And warm your
    Aching heart!

    • Oh, wow! The story is so vivid and I loved the entire scenery with the fog. It really made the setting so dark and wicked in its own verisimilitude. I loved the foreshadowing as well, and the ending was amazing! What a fantastic horror story. Thank you for sharing!

    • Hello Coco. Thank you for your submission. I’m afraid it wasn’t quite right for us, but I wish you all the best in placing your work elsewhere. Don’t feel disheartened, it just isn’t quite what we’re looking for right now.

      Best wishes,
      ~Lucy

  14. ok so here is a previously unpublished poem I wrote in 1986 fo your consideration – many thanks – edenbray
    ..
    UNTITLED FROM 1986

    ..

    Recollections

    emotive memories

    lost moments – we live

    ..

    I remember when I was young

    when we were children

    playing – the things we did!

    ..

    School times, hard times

    love times

    it all comes back

    ..

    Does the sap rise?

    here the lump in my throat

    there the ache in my heart

    ..

    The Summer of .. . . ..’

    that cold, cold winter

    my first car, what a peach

    ..

    Memories skip and dance

    whimper, pall and fade

    live, warm and energise

    ..

    I’m thinking of you

    the things we did

    Wow!

    ..

    And you know its fun

    to remember

    even sorrow has its end

    ..

    Shaft of reason

    hand of compassion

    moment of understanding

    ..

    We grope to experience

    the plight of others

    the memories they carry

    ..

    We fear the night dreams they know

    the sad tales they could tell

    we whimper at their loss

    ..

    The terror of darkness

    and agony that surrounds us

    we stand aghast

    ..

    Can we lift, nurture?

    then be done and do it!

    more often we listen

    ..

    And we, as the tale is told wonder

    till confronted by the past

    we long for the future

    ..

      • Hello Eden.

        That is generally not how I accept submissions on here. I have a link to a Google Forms document on the Submit Here page, which is how I receive submissions.

        However, your submission has been accepted and will be up tomorrow morning EST time. Be on the lookout for it then.
