Call for submissions ‘Don’t Let Them In’

Someone’s at the door… uninvited… unwelcome… Dont Let Them In.

What’s behind the door? A killer? A monster? Nothing? Is there even a door? Who are ‘they’? What are we letting them into – a house? A mind?

Don’t be fooled by this seemingly predictable theme – we’re looking for stories that push the boundaries of what this phrase may seem to be at first glance.

Our next submission window is open from 1st March to 31 May 2023.


  • We accept fiction and poetry up to 666 words in length.
  • You can make one submission per category (fiction and poetry).
  • Submissions will be considered from Australian citizens and residents only.

Contributors will be paid $0.05 AUD per word for work accepted for publishing.

We do not publish works that dwell unnecessarily in or are unchallenging of racism, misogyny, bigotry and sexual violence.

Full submission guidelines and instructions are available on our website.
