Spectator & Spooks is a literary magazine devoted to art that explores otherness.

Is this a literary magazine about ghosts? Yes! Also, no! We want art about what it is like to be on the sidelines of history, of daily life, and also of life. So, yes, send us your ghosts…but don’t shy away from sending us stories of ghastly encounters in life as well. We welcome fiction, nonfiction, and articles tackling this subject and theme. We love to see work that experiments with genre boundaries and are looking for works from a diverse audience. We currently do not offer payment for accepted submissions but we do support our writers in publicizing their work on social media outlets. We are working to find a way to pay our contributors.

We are now taking submissions in the following genres:

Short Stories

Personal Essays




Please submit your work to our submittable page here

Thank you for sharing your ghosts. ♥
