Require a writer to produce articles about historical characters, places, locations. I need to read about the ghastly, horrible and evil things that these people did or that occurred at these places which are now believed to be haunted. So serial killers, prisons, hospitals, torture chambers etc are all fair game as along as the events happened more than 75 years ago. The subject needs to go beyond a simple retelling of murder; the piece we are looking for describes the elaborate and outlandish ways the killer went about his/her work or the shear horror that may have occurred at a location. We don't seek to glamorize the evil, but we are looking for an interesting read and not a police blotter. Subjects with strong sexual content are of no interest so it may be mentioned but is not the topic we are looking for.
In the past we have done stories on H.H. Holmes, Lady Bathory, and the Italian island of Poveglia. Possible subject matter could be Paris Catacombs, and Gilles de Rais. Haunted places with some gruesome past would also work. Imagine a true story that could be used as the premise for a horror movie - that is what we are looking for.
Submit your idea for the subject matter of the story before writing to make sure we agree with the subject. We need multiple articles 4 to 6 so it could lead to additional work.
Articles need to be 1,400 to 1,600 words in length
