Call for Submissions:
Just the Surface: An Anthology of Mermaid Poetry
How does the modern mermaid exist in our cultures today? Who is she? How
does she function and thrive in a contemporary world? What are her
concerns; in what escapades does she busy herself with today? Where and
who does she find mischief in now? Who are the world’s mermaids now?
This collection will see where she lives, in poems, today; however,
these poems do not have to completely center on the mermaid but could
suggest her, mention her, and, at the very least, bring her into
question within the poem. This anthology is seeking quality poems of a
truly unique and speculating nature. Poetry of a fantasy genre is not
the goal of this project and we ask that you do not submit if that is
your particular style.
If your poem is selected you will receive a contributor’s copy.
Please send a brief bio along with poems.
Submit 3-5 poems.
Please include your contact information on each poem.
Please send your poems to:
just.the.surface(at)gmail.com (Replace (at) with @.)
Deadline is February 25th.
