Call for Submissions: House of Secrets

Updated: Jul 29, 2023

Greetings Ohio Writers,

The Ohio Writers’ Association is now accepting submissions for our 2023 anthology, House of Secrets. We are collecting fiction and creative nonfiction related to the theme of secrets. We are looking for stories about making, keeping, discovering, and revealing secrets. Our submission window runs from March 18, 2023, through April 20, 2023. Submit via the Ohio Writers Association website ( There is a nominal $5 cost to submit a story, but paying members of the Ohio Writers’ Association may submit one piece for consideration at no charge. For the pieces we choose, we will pay $50 and provide complimentary copies of the paperback and audiobook versions. We are looking for stories from 1,000 to 10,000 words in length.

As we did with our previous two anthologies, Outcasts and Metamorphosis, we will work with the Ohio Audiobook Narrators to create a quality audiobook of our book to accompany our print and eBook versions. Few things are more rewarding than hearing your story read and produced by a professional audiobook narrator!

Write something new, or polish up an old piece. But in any case, submit a story for consideration by midnight on April 20!

If you have questions about this publishing opportunity or want more information, please get in touch with us at

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions about our upcoming project. We can’t wait to read your submissions.


Made possible in part from funding from the Ohio Arts Council.
