Creature Publishing was founded on a passion for feminist discourse and horror's potential for social commentary and catharsis. Seeking to address the gender imbalance and lack of diversity traditionally found in the horror genre, Creature is a platform for stories which challenge the status quo. Our definition of feminist horror, broad and inclusive, expands the scope of what horror can be and who can make it.

Creature publishes up to four full-length works of feminist horror a year. Our definition of feminist horror is broad and inclusive, and we welcome writing that pushes boundaries. We prefer submissions in the range of 25,000–60,000 words (100–250 pages) and accept fiction, nonfiction, or genre-defying prose. Submissions should be either .docx or .pdf files, in 12 pt. font. We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your manuscript is accepted elsewhere. Completed manuscripts only.
