Submissions for Website

We do not pay for writing or artwork published on the website.

Through a Lens Darkly

Every week, we will post a photograph as a prompt for a story. Readers are encouraged to contribute their interpretations of the image in 1,000 words or less. We will post the best stories and archive them as well although all rights will remain with the original writers. All stories will carry a byline and a short biography of the writer. Send submissions to: submissions@darkvalentine.net with the words “Through a Lens Darkly” and the title in the subject line.

Photographers may submit their work as well. Send attachments in jpeg form to: submissions@darkvalentine.net with the words “Through a Lens Darkly” and the photograph’s title in the subject line.

Serialized Fiction

Writers who have works of fiction longer than 5000 words may query submissions@darkvalentine.net about serializing their work on the site. Put “Serialization” in the subject line.

We do not pay writers for serialized fiction.
