We are pleased to announce the official launch of Monstrum, published by Spectral Visions Press.
So what exactly is Monstrum?
Monstrum is an academic journal which specialises in monsters and the monstrous. It welcomes submissions of an interdisciplinary kind, as long as it is original and interesting. Monstrum is a celebration of all things Gothic, from the supernatural to the Borders; from Penny Dreadfuls to folklore.
Our editorial board boasts some of the most innovative and well-respected minds in the field of Gothic studies and literature, as well as some prolific authors on the writing scene. You can view the full list of members here.
We are seeking proposals for our inaugural issue. You can download the Call for Papers here. The deadline for proposals in 31st January 2015. The issue will be available later in 2015.
And don’t forget that 31st January is also the deadline for submissions for Spectral Visions: Grim Fairy Tales, also published under Spectral Visions Press. You can see the call for submissions on this blog here.
Look out for a post soon about the launch of Spectral Visions Press, with further information about the kick-off celebrations: Spectral Visions, Burns, The Borders.
