Coffin Bell

Coffin Bell is a new online journal of dark literature edited by Tamara Burross Grisanti and Sarah V. Parson. We currently have a call for submissions for our 2018 inaugural issue. We are seeking poetry, flash fiction, short stories, and creative nonfiction that explore dark themes. When we say “dark themes,” we don’t necessarily mean traditional horror. We want to read what constitutes horror to you. Surprise us. Make us think in a new way. Give us a new fear. Make our skin crawl.

Ready to submit? First, read our submission guidelines here. Then email your submission to
