Hidden Thoughts Press Phobias Anthology

Real People, Real Phobias

Hidden Thoughts Press is looking for true stories of phobias and how you’ve learned to live with them, overcome them, or even if you are still learning how to deal with those irrational fears everyone tells you is all in your head. The phobia can be yours, or someone you have a relationship with — parent, sibling, spouse, etc.

Give us real, give us raw, and hold nothing back. Hidden Thoughts Press wants those stories from the heart, telling us the ups and downs, the funny and the scary parts of having a phobia.

How do phobias affect your life? How do you get through them when the source of your fear makes itself known? How has having a phobia affected your relationship with others? What helps you make in through the stress a phobia can cause? Who has offered a shoulder to lean on?

Inspiration and hope are key to these stories. We want people to read yours and realize they’re not alone in the world of irrational fear. We want stories to help lift the feelings of isolation and depression that having a phobia can cause.

We also want to know how you stay ahead of your phobia? How to you control it, instead of letting it control you?

We know writing about your fears is a difficult task. Nothing is more scary than facing what you are afraid of, even in the written word. But we encourage you to share your stories, and hope that by doing so, your knowledge and experiences will help readers realize other people have felt the way they do and overcame it, and by extension, provide a cathartic experience for the sufferer as well.

Stories need to be sent by electronic submissions only. Your stories should be attached, not pasted into the body of your email, in RTF or DOC format. Do not send them in DOCX, ODT or WPD format. Please provide a brief cover letter with all your contact info, title, and word count and publication history, if any. Don’t worry if you haven’t been published. Hidden Thoughts Press still wants to hear from you.

All stories should have the author’s name, address, email and phone number in the top left corner and approximate word count in the top right corner. The story title should appear centered over the work about a third of the way down the page. Please do not use page numbers, headers or footers in your work. If a word or phrase needs emphasis, please use italics instead of underlining or captitalization.

Stories should be 1,500 to 6000 words, in Times New Roman or Courier/Courier New 12pt font, double spaced and left justified. Leave the right margin ragged. Please use 1”margins on all sides. Use 1 tab indent for paragraphs. If you aren’t sure how to format a manuscript, please visit:

You may submit up to two (2) stories for consideration

No reprints

No simultaneous submissions

The anthology is open until filled.

You will receive a confirmation email to let you know your submission has been received.

Hidden Thoughts Press is looking for submissions

As you all should know by now, I am the Executive Editor at Hidden Thoughts Press. We are looking for non-fiction submissions for book designed to help the mental health community. We have a few submission calls happening now, edited by the very capable Rebecca Besser and Lauren Panobianco. And I’ve put out a call myself, on phobias.


Phobia. What is it about this word that makes people cringe, or look over their shoulder, or even stand up straighter to look bigger? Nearly everyone is afraid of something, rational or irrational. Some of us have learned to deal with those fears, some of us have conquered them, and some of us still cower in the corner at the thought of that fear. Hidden Thoughts Press is looking for your non-fict…ion story about your fear. How do you deal with it? Have you conquered it? Did you have help, or did you just do it yourself? Maybe you live with someone who has a phobia. How does that person’s phobia affect your life? How do you help them when it strikes? We want those stories, those tales of inspiration. We want your stories to help others, to let those who still cower in the corner know that phobias can be lived with, that they don’t get to control our lives, and, in some cases, that they can be conquered.  Visit or email me at for more information.
