We strongly recommend reading a Sinister Stoat book to get a better feel of what we want and look for in our authors. 


Sinister Stoat Press is only seeking work as of May 2020:

  • Authors of Color
  • Authors who Identify as LGBTQ+
  • Authors with Disabilities
  • Authors who are current or former Sex Workers

 In your submission, include a cover letter that addresses the following:

  •  The goal of your book
  • Your target audience for your book
  • A brief synopsis
  • Possible promotional ideas and ways to develop your brand as an author


Do not submit your whole manuscript. Only include a small selection of poems, the first few chapters of your novel or novella, or a few short stories from your short story collection.

Sinister  Stoat Press is focused on publishing works of horror, whether through  poetry or fiction. The key for us is suspension of disbelief. We want to  be able to read your work, put it down and go “Did that just happen?”  Want to be immersed, taken out of our lives and thrown into a horrific  whirl of terror. Though we look at most horror, we tend to specialize in  experimental styles (found documents, stylized fiction,  photography and word blends, etc.), stories featuring strong  LGBTQ characters, strong characters of color, Furry related material,  drug induced writings, and No Sleep Reddit style fiction.

Tip from the editor: "Currently, I'm really looking to get a hold of some queer erotic horror. A book that can keep me up at night in more ways than one."

We  will not review any non-fiction works, memoirs, overly religious  material, torture porn, endorsements of Nazi beliefs, or anything  featuring positive portrayals of racism, homophobia, transphobia, rape,  sexual assault, and victim blaming.

We currently publish:

  • Fiction chapbooks and Novellettes: up to 30K words, no less than 15K words.
  • Novella: 31K to 80K words.
  • Novel: Minimum 81K words. NOTE: Weasel Press generally does not accept works that are over 140K words. 
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
