​​All submissions should be e-mailed to the address listed below with the issue theme and medium (short story, poetry, other) stated in the subject.

Please submit your work in a PDF file, including a cover letter of no more than 150 words on the first page of your submission; begin your work on a new page after your cover letter. Multiple submissions should be separated into different files attached to the same email with a cover letter for each submission.

Each submission should be no longer than 5,000 words.

  • Pen names are allowed as long as they are appropriate.

While we will try not to limit your creative presentation, do remember that your work will mainly be hosted on this website, so please be reasonable in your formatting.

We will accept your published work depending on the copyright status of the previous publisher, so please double check before submitting!

As we do not wish to keep your submission all to ourselves, simultaneous submissions are also welcomed! Please inform us immediately through e-mail if your work has been accepted elsewhere before our issue’s release.


Most of all, please do not send us work that you are unsatisfied with. We want you to be proud enough to share your published work on Silent Mayhem with your friends, families, and potential employers!



Silent Mayhem are proud to pay our artists for their contributions!

All payments are made through Paypal in SGD.
