Spook-Eats is looking to start a new journal that highlights the hard work of women in the paranormal.
As a female in the paranormal, I’ve found that sometimes, it’s difficult for women to have their voices heard and their work highlighted. That’s why I’m compiling the writings and works of female paranormal researchers, historians, and investigators from all over the globe!
I am looking for non-fiction writings only at this time. If you’re interested in submitting, check out the guidelines below.
Please submit your unpublished works on ghosts, folklore, the occult, dark history, investigations, research, women in the field, etc. with a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 5,000 words. Please email it as a WORD Document labeled with your NAME and the TITLE of your work. Send your submission to email@example.com with FEMALE JOURNAL SUBMISSION as the subject.
Photos/illustrations should either be your own or in the public domain. Please place the images in the document where you would like them to appear. We will read through each article and edit as needed with spelling, grammar, etc., but please be sure to send us a polished piece of writing.
Please also include a short bio and headshot to be included in the journal. Your bio should be 200 words or less.
This is open to women worldwide.
Like I said before, Spook-Eats is a one-woman business (and I’m also a new mama now!). I’ll be reading through each piece but won’t have time to respond to everyone. You will not hear from us if we decide to pass on your submission. But don’t be discouraged! Depending on the success of the first edition, there could be many more opportunities to come! You will only hear from us if we decide to publish your work.
At the moment, Spook-Eats is unable to pay writers for articles. Writers will be given two free copies of the journal as well as a chance to purchase additional copies at the wholesale price in order to resell them on their own. Again, depending on the success of this little journal, this may change in the future!
I would like to release the journal on International Women’s Day on Monday, March 8, 2021. Therefore, the deadline for all submissions is February 15, 2021.
