    Gritty Short Stories. Help!

    Does anybody know a publisher who specialises in these?

    Hi Stu,

    I'm not sure what you mean by gritty. There are a few magazines that specialize in erotic and a few that don't mind graphic blood and gore. Most horror magazines shy away from the graphic. It doesn't take a lot of talent to write gory scenes. But, it does take talent to instill fear without resorting to the gore. They prefer more of the psychological or fear factor stories.

    Your best bet to shop for such markets would be the Writer's Market published by Writer's Digest Books. It lists around 1800 magazine publishers along with their guidelines. And, the specific categories are separated making it easy to find those that will accept your 'gritty' stories.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks Kaz - their neither erotic nor horror just natural. I was just trying to seperate it from historical romance.
    Sorry about the gritty.
