Sneak Peek of Theme Issue One: Editor's Note

Editor’s Note

What does lurk on the very edge of the wood? Not simply cloaked in complete darkness of the deep, menacing heart of the forest. Nor safe in our beds. No, we wanted to know what slinks in the corners, moving through the blending of two worlds with both light and darkness.

We were a bit nervous to throw out the idea of our first theme issue. Firstly, we have never done an issue before. Would we be alone in our interest? Would we be standing between two places wondering where everyone else was? Our fears were tempered when we began seeing so many enthusiastic and creative submissions come through during the reading period.

From our original call for submissions, each of these six writers has interpreted the question in their own imaginative way. Whether the story is pulsing with the Weird, adventure, horror or the unknown, you’ll certainly have trouble picking a favourite.

*Theme Issue One will release on Monday, 17th of December

Testing a New Submission Form

We are trialling a new submission form. For the time being, we are keeping the older form available as well as an option, but anything submitting through either will be added to the reading queue. The original form is elegant and simple . The new form allows authors to upload their writing directly to us. If you have comments or suggestions, please drop a line in the comments section. Otherwise, please try out submitting in the form below!

Theme Issue: 

what is on the very edge of the wood?

We are actively seeking submissions of both fiction and flash fiction for our very first themed issue. The theme is what is on the very edge of the wood? There are many stories about venturing into the deep, dark wood, but what is it that's right on the very edge. Interpret that however you wish!

Submissions close the 1st of November 2018.

Patreon: Becoming a Patron

This past year--our first year--has been extraordinary for many reasons. We've published excellent stories, and have had the support of such creative readers and writers. We hope 2017 and on, will both continue and grow The Wild Hunt. 

This month, we set up a Patreon page. We have one patron so far. Woohoo! We're beyond excited. The idea is to use funds to help maintain operational costs, but also, muster up some support to pay contributors. That is a top priority. 

We hope you consider becoming a patron (think, only $1 a month) and when you are a part of our Patreon, we have a couple of thank yous coming your way.

Please pop on over.
