  • Additional info

    WE DO NOT PUBLISH: Fan fiction. Scenes/excerpts/synopses from novels. Thinly veiled stories that preach from a soapbox of any sort, whether political, religious, or otherwise. Excessive violence, profanity, or erotica in any form. *Our editors will start sending out acceptance and rejection emails during the first week of each month for the next month’s stories (e.g., if you submitted a story to be published in January, you should hear something the first week of December). Once all days in a given month have been acquired, submissions for that month will be closed. Havok pays via PayPal for each winning story published in an anthology, and anthology authors also receive one complimentary digital copy of the anthology. Payment varies depending on seasonal fundraisers, but as of 2021 we hope to maintain at least $50 per story.
