Splatter Club Submissions ONLY

JohnMRedline@gmail.com is reading for Rural Exploration Red Line submissions - listed below

The Splatter Club is dedicated to spotlighting new and seasoned authors.


Splatterpunk, extreme horror, and bizarro fiction are terms that carry many interpretations for different individuals. For some, it’s torture porn and vile fantasies. For others, it’s creative concepts and well-developed characters wrapped up in a subversive message. We’re open to giving everyone a chance, so when in doubt, send it our way.
