Ghostlight, The Magazine of Terror Submissions (Open to Everyone)

Ghostlight: The Magazine of Terror is open for original submissions in 2017 during the specified period! Please click on the link below to see our updated guidelines.

Ghostlight: The Magazine of Terror is a magazine devoted to horror fiction, art, and poetry.  It is published once a year (Fall) by Great Lakes Association of Horror Writers. Unlike Erie TalesGhostlight: The Magazine of Terror is open to all writers.

It is edited by our very own Nicole Castle.

We specialize in horror in all its guises, particularly for adult audiences. We’re open to most settings and themes, from historical, modern, supernatural, and even the future. We want our writers to push the boundaries of horror. We need writing that will challenge, scare and surprise our readers; stories and poetry that will make us gasp at the end and haunt us for a long time afterwards. Thrill and fright is what our readers want!

If you have any questions not covered in the guidelines, please feel free to contact Nicole at:


March 1 – June 1  (Publishing target: September)

Ghostlight: The Magazine of Terror may also send out special calls for themed or charity issues throughout the year.

Any submissions sent outside these reading periods will be deleted unread.
