Black Candies is a literary journal of literary horror and darkness. Here at Black Candies, we’re always striving to create a better platform for women writers, who are often underrepresented in horror, genre, and speculative outlets. We want to create a space where they not only have a voice, but be as gross, dark and unlikeable as they want. Which is why 2016’s issue of Black Candies is themed: “Gross and Unlikeable.” Submissions are open to women-identified only.
Tips From the Editor
Make us cringe. No official word count, but 2,000 - 6,000 is ideal. As always, we encourage open interpretations of the theme. We expect a lot of body horror stories— and yes we do love body horror— but we also want diversity in content.
