More About Shroud

"Submissions may now include horror, suspense, mystery, noir, fantasy, science fiction, humor, long-form poetry, bizarro, or other forms of intelligent, experimental writing... In most cases, we prefer stories that rely on mood, atmosphere, well-crafted dialogue and sensory details to tell a well-thought-out tale." Shroud pays $10 per poem upon publication and purchases First Worldwide Serial and Electronic rights. Rights revert to author upon publication.
