What I learned this week

  • A lot of publications don’t like fables.
  • A lot of publications are dead and inactive.
  • There aren’t many horror mags/journals.
  • Body horror has no market, apparently.
  • Publishing is damn hard.
  • Self-publishing is looking really good right now.

That is all.

As an avid writer and poet, Alyssa Hubbard explores the earthly and spectral talismans that carry us from life to death and back again through her work. As the darkness within makes its way from pen to paper, she finds room for more joyous activities, such as sampling new ice cream flavors, singing in public, and geeking out over the latest anime. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in English, works in Digital Marketing, and has been writing (professionally) for 8 years. Her work has been featured in literary journals and magazines such as Adanna, The Coffin Bell, and many others.


  1. What’s body horror?

    1. Where a specific body part or appendage is the source of the horror. It’s like a branch off of psychological horror.

  2. I have noticed a disappearance of markets but that has been going on for a while. Finding anthologies to submit to has been another market option. But in the end self publishing is one of the best options.

    1. True that. I love that there is so much more freedom to do so… I’m a little late to the party, though. 😛
