Our mission is to "give a voice to the voiceless" by supporting all dark creatives (emerging and established) and their works, with an emphasis on publishing fiction, poetry, and art that have had difficulty finding a publisher. Unlike other magazines that ban slasher, faux pas issues, and Christian themes, TDS welcomes these types of submissions with high consideration.
By providing a stage that highlights the taboo, authors regain their creative freedoms while readers gain a platform that represents a full spectrum of speculative fiction, poetry, and art without the use of censorship.
Likewise, for the creatives themselves, TDS endeavors to go beyond the printed page by providing opportunities for promotion, which includes but is not limited to organizing author/artist events, book signings, and interviews. We even create promotional trailers, a fiction podcast, and folk songs for select works - free of charge for our creatives.
We vow to publish only the best content for a great reading experience while also uplifting and promoting our creatives to celebrate their work.
