Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Morbidly Beautiful’s new original horror fiction and art column “Blood on the Digital Page” is coming, and we want to feature your work.

Last month, we made a huge announcement that we’re still buzzing about. We announced our decision to start publishing original, short horror fiction on this site. The response to that post has been tremendous, and we’ve had the honor of reading some truly creative, terrifying, and compelling stories, as submitted by our amazing readers. It’s taken us some time to go through the submissions, which continue to roll in, and compile a few of the best ones for publication.

But we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be publishing the first story in the new BLOOD ON THE DIGITAL PAGE series on May 1st, 2020. 

Our first story is so insanely good; our jaws dropped when we read it. And we can’t wait to share it with you!

Now that we have several great stories waiting in the wings, you can look forward to another original story every other Friday, right here on Morbidly Beautiful. But that’s not all. 

We’re also thrilled to announce the launch of the new BLOOD ON THE DIGITAL PAGE podcast.

Our Program Director and Ominous Origins Podcast host Casey Chaplin will be narrating our short stories — one every other week, timed with the release of the story’s publication on Morbidly Beautiful. If you’ve listened to Casey’s Ominous Origins show or his storytelling podcast, By the Candle’s Light, you already know how much of a treat you’re in for. The audio version of BLOOD ON THE DIGITAL PAGE will be available on or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

Now, whether you prefer to read these stories online or listen to Casey’s dulcet-toned voice read them aloud to you, we’ve got you covered.

If you have an original short story you’d like to share with the world, we’d love to read it.

If we like what we see, you could see your work published on this site, featured on our podcast, and promoted to our large and engaged social media network. We prefer previously unpublished work, but we will consider other previously published work, especially if the story was posted on a personal blog or small website.

We’re also looking for original art/photography to accompany these stories, and all artists/photographers who share their work with us will receive a photo/art credit and byline, which may include a link to your site/portfolio as well as your social media handles.

Note: We are unable to pay for submissions at this time. However, all writers and artists do maintain full copyright ownership of any work submitted and published. We only ask that, if you choose to publish your work on another website, you include a link indicating the story was originally published on
