Here Be Monsters Call for Cover Artists

We always aim to put out a high-quality book for our readers to enjoy, and part of that is good art for the cover.

We are currently looking for artists for our third and fourth issues.

For the 3rd issue, all the stories take place in the same fantasy world and revolve around enormous creatures called Cities. The working title for this issue is “Where Cities Tread”. Though we do want to advertise what the stories are about, we don't need a literal picture of the creatures. If this job interests you, please contact us and we'll be happy to share more information about it with you.

For the 4th issue, tentatively called “The Idea Shop”, we are looking for a more atmospheric, less specific piece. This issue will be the first one where we will be publishing work from writers outside of our group, so pieces evoking collaboration, entrepreneurship, or a weird marketplace could all fit. However, we're very open to other concepts, so please feel free to contact us with your proposal.

Here are some examples of our previous covers, though you need not feel that you have to “match” their style.

Both issues will be published simultaneously in November, so the cover piece must be submitted to us by October 17th at the latest. In addition to having your work on the cover, you will be credited on the website and in the book. You will receive one free copy of the issue and you may buy as many as you like for cost.

We look forward to seeing your work. Please send all questions and samples to You can also find us on Facebook

Thank you,

The Here Be Monsters Staff
