The Red House: An Anthology of Genre and Speculative Poems

What is “The Red House”

The Red House is a cabinet of curiosities; a terrarium for the macabre and bizarre; the enchanted and fantastical; where anything can happen. Many reside within the walls of The Red House—from the smallest pixies to the greatest cosmic horrors, and a door may lead to a far distant magical land, or to the furthest depths of outer space. 


Call For Submissions!

Submissions will be open from September 1st to October 31st and we welcome writers from across the globe. The anthology will be published in PDF form late November.

Please send up to 3 unpublished poems in any style and a short 50 word bio to poetrycypress@gmail.com with Red House Submission as the subject line. Please make sure your submission does not exceed 5 pages. 

We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if you have to withdraw one or more of your submitted poems.

Your poems should be in the fantasy, horror, sci-fi genres, or a mixture thereof. We do not favour one genre over another, we enjoy high fantasy just as much as we enjoy psychological horror, so send us what you feel is your best work. 

Note: Writers submitting to The Red House may not hear back about their work until early to mid November.
