Spill Yr Guts Horror Zine is a publication for horror fans and creators alike. Are you working on a novel? Send us an excerpt for publication. Do you want to tear apart your latest late-night watch? Email us your best review of that garbage to give others a heads up.

What we like: gory, slasher, cerebral, ghostly, atmospheric pieces--both written and visual.

What we don't like: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia--marginalization and discrimination as weak plot devices.

We accept rolling submissions and previously published work (just let us know). If you'd like to submit your work, please read the guidelines below and send your submissions, along with a short bio, to spillyrgutszine@gmail.com.

Issue six is scheduled for release 5 July.
Submissions received after 21 June will be considered for issue seven.
