Pitching or submitting to Horrified

Horrified is always happy to consider pitches on any British horror-related subject. We’d love to hear your ideas for British horror articles, features, retrospectives, columns, reviews and fiction. 

Below you’ll find our submission email where you can both pitch your idea and submit your draft. 

Author and publishers, we have a dedicated book reviews email here. For film reviews and interviews (short or feature-length), you can get in touch here. We have a general contact email too. 

**PLEASE NOTE**

We shall soon be relaunching our Newsletter. Some submissions may be utilised as exclusive content for subscribers on initial publication but will be republished and available publicly on the main website at a later date. If you have any questions, please contact us here.

Pitches

We’re keen for a full spectrum of writers to contribute to Horrified. If you have an idea for an article – whether you’re a fan of British horror with a passion for the subject or an academic with an interesting critical take – please get in touch. 

We encourage submissions from  from new, emerging and experienced writers. There is no word count range (we’re just as keen to publish a series of in-depth retrospectives, a 3,000-word critical analysis or a one-off love letter to a particular facet of British horror).

If you think you have something that might be suitable, we’d love to hear from you, so email us to pitch your idea. Once your pitch is approved and you’ve completed a draft, submissions should be sent as an attachment (Word doc or similar) to our submissions email.

Submissions

Once your pitch is approved and you’ve completed a draft, submissions should be sent as an attachment (Word doc or similar) to our submissions email.

From there we’ll take over and prepare your submission for publication. We’re happy to make minor adjustments (the odd grammar and punctuation error) but may request further edits for anything that requires further work before publication. 

We have a very limited monthly budget which afford payment for the following:

– Film /Television/Other (£15 per article)

– Film/Television/Book Reviews (£10 per review)

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to pay for Fiction or The A-Z of Horror submissions. 

Any questions, email us here

Joining Horrified

We’re always on the lookout for team members who can help deliver on our promise to celebrate and champion British horror. To this end, please get in touch if you think you’d like to contribute to Horrified on an ongoing, regular basis. 

As a relatively new magazine, we are unable to pay our contributors at this time, but this is something we would love to be able to do in the future.

Send us a few examples of your work and some ideas for ways you think we can improve Horrified with your help and let’s have a chat. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
