Attention Horror Readers:
Yes, you heard right, SNM Magazine is
Attention Horror Writers:
Do you have an original short story you want to have published? All first and second time published and self-published writers welcome. If we publish it, we will showcase your story and promote your book or website right underneath your featured work in the hallowed halls of our magazine. If available, we will also post your featured author bio and picture on the site for the months your story is published. Submit us your best unpublished fiction! You can promote your book directly through your own channels of promotion and still get your name out to the masses. We don't charge fees for reading your story. We are the bootcamp of horror. Our philosophy is this: since no one becomes famous overnight, it's imperative for new writers to get exposure and acquire a good fan base. So, it's all about having your stories read, initially. We have become a launching ground for authors, who get feedback from our editors to learn and grow before submitting to pro paying markets. Moreover, we are a theme based magazine, which means by hosting a challenging theme, we force writers to write fresh stories, instead of submitting older works/reprints or recycled rejects. Anyone published in SNM Mag can make it in the pro paying market and we are here to trigger and ignite that dark inspiration for writers.
SNM Mag Promotion:
Fear not, we have covered all the bases. We are registered with all the major horror directory venues such as Duotrope, Preditors & Editors, Ralan, Horrorfind, Horrorgenre, Every Writer's Resource, and more. Additionally, we are listed on all the major search engines like Google, Yahoo,
We are open to submissions all year -- and the floodgates are opened! Horror writers wanted dead or alive for morbid cryptic weavings and grim scribe offerings! If you have an original work of horror between 2000-5000 words, then send it here, we want to see it! We will also provide feedback if we do not accept it, most likely within sixty days. We accept subs all year around but review 40 days to month featured.

We are live with the "April Amnesias," issues #65 & #66. We thank everyone who submitted for this harder theme. We received 62 submissions for the April Amnesias issue. We've chosen (8) featured stories for the upcoming issue. We are now open for reviewing for the June Jinxes issue.
Welcome back to SNM Horror Mag, issues 65 & 66: April Amnesias. For the April issue, the theme is amnesia, memory loss, senility, Alzheimer's. One of the scariest personal fears we have is losing our mental facilities - not being able to remember something short term or long term. What was once crystal clear in the form of black and white has now dulled down into both, fading into a gray haze. We asked our writers to feel the terror associated with memory loss, and what trials and tribulations the main characters are going through. We didn’t receive an overwhelming amount of submissions for this issue, but the ones we published were all top-quality psychological laments of intrigue. We have four returning SNM Authors and four new ones to add to the roster, two of which are first time published anywhere authors. Congrats!
Announcements: Coming in June we proudly present a new collaboration novella written by Steven Marshall and Brett Graham called Puppet World. It will feature 3 stories from both authors. Imagine life from behind the eyes of puppets, dollss and marionettes, seeing us as the superficial race...
