We are having another open call for submissions! This one will be done EARLY because it will take some time to put together this project.

Title: Gothic Betty Crocker Cookbook (And DIY Crafts)

We are looking for your own original recipes and craft how-to’s. This will collection will be hardcover and released in October for Halloween. This is a fun book with recipes from everything from Meatloaf to Fake Blood. You must submit your own photos for a step-by-step process of making your recipe. We also invite you to make a video of you making it so we can post it here!

We are not posting a word limit at this time because some projects are bigger than others. You will be asked to sign a release form for the pictures so do not scan the internet for these.

Pay: Each accepted submission will be paid $25

This will be an annual project. Some entries will be kept for future published cookbooks, so when you submit please remember that we may hold onto it and reserve the right to publish it in another book (yes, you’ll still get paid for it).

  1. This looks like fun! I have a question, though. I found this open call on a fiction submission list site. As such, I was wondering what your thoughts were on a recipe being submitted in the context of a piece of microfiction or a poem.
