We are particularly interested in receiving high quality non-fiction in the form of essays / articles relevant to our genre. 

Such work should be both informed and readable. We dislike jargon and are particularly opposed to the use of language in an obscure / grandstanding way. 

We will consider essays of up to 4,000 words. 

Our preference is for essays ‘first to us’ in terms of publication. However, we will consider work that has been published elsewhere (details of which should be provided with the piece). 

Bibliography should be attached where relevant.

Spelling – Please note that we require spelling to be in British English not American English. This is a British-edited site.

Having images can be helpful, but we must be assured that our use of them will be legal in terms of copyright, etc.

Writers should attach a biography of up to 100 words and a photograph.

By submitting the sender implies that they have legal right to do so and that the author is the given writer. The act of sending accordingly indemnifies Horla.

Submissions should be sent to horlamagazine@hotmail.com

Please send your submission to horlamagazine@hotmail.com

Note that with the exception of ‘news’, material should not have been published previously (either online or in print), meaning publication will be first to Horla. Exceptions may be made in the case of material whose publication in Horla would constitute first publication in English.
