There are things we cannot see that watch us. It’s the stories we rarely tell that shape us.
Then It Was Dark is a collection of personal paranormal experiences, true ghost stories, friend-of-a-friend tales and brushes with the unknown.
Have you ever experienced something unnatural, inexplicable, or just strange? Ever seen a ghost? Ever watch a dozen blue-eyed snakes leap out of a campfire and slither away into the woods? Ever talk to a serial killer? We want your stories.
Personal experiences are best, but friend-of-a-friend stories or historical nonfiction are also good. The stories don’t have to be purely scary, they can be funny, or sad, or just strange. As long as they fit the theme of first-hand encounters with the paranormal or the unknown.
Accepted stories will be paid $35 a page, (more if the project reaches its stretch goals) plus contributor’s copies. We’re looking for stories that are ten pages or less right now.
If you are a writer looking for an artist, or an artist looking for a writer, we may be able to match you up.
If you are a creator with a story of your own and the chops to draw it, excellent!
If you are interested, send your pitches here. Please do not start work until your pitch is accepted (unless you just want to draw the story for yourself anyway.)
The deadline for pitches is March 15th, 2014. You can submit as many as you want, but try to narrow it down to two or three at the most.
Good luck out there.
