Vampyre Bytes  (a subsidiary project of the South African Vampyre Academy) is an outlet for fiction, art and creativity created by the South African Vampyre Community. Although this material and these contributions do not HAVE to be vampcentric, nor do their creators HAVE to be Vampyres themselves, it is preferable. Items are posted on this site under the Creative Commons License and copyright remains with the authors.


Although Vampyre Bytes is geared towards creativity ideally created by those based primarily in South Africa, it is also open to participants in the SAVC located elsewhere.

Vampyre Bytes is a site that facilitates the display of visual art, having the capacity to showcase video, photography,  or images of other art forms such as sculpture, painting, drawing or graphic design, audio and music, and written art including fiction, non-fiction, poetry and other narrative forms.

Although material displayed on the site does not HAVE to be specifically vampcentric, or necessarily created by Vampyres, it is preferable that either the material or the creator have or had some kind of ties to or interaction with the Vampi(y)re Community in order to qualify.

Good at cartooning, fabric painting, textile design, leather work, making pottery items, clothing, animation, tattoo or jewelry design, writing poetry, short stories etc? Fang maker? The possibilities are endless.


PLEASE NOTE: While our creators may contribute items which may relate to vampyrism or the vampyric state, or allude to the fictional or mythical vampire, it should not be ASSUMED that the contributor is themselves necessarily a Vampyre, nor should the nature or degree of their participation – as anything more than someone who has interacted with the online Vampyre Community in some positive way.

All works are displayed on the Vampyre Bytes site under the Creative Commons License and full control and copyright remains with their owners or creators.

Posting is free and there is no payment for displaying items on the Vampire Bytes site.
