Submissions Open for Mermaid Anthology
Submission deadline: November 1, 2013
Mermaids in the Basement is an anthology seeking original poems of
mermaid poetry. This project is interested in poems that push the
mermaid myth and figure into a new light. Submissions should not simply
retell the mermaid and her classic story but establish new facets in
which to read, question, admire, interrogate, and fear this fantastical
siren. Poems need not mention mermaids directly but must suggest, at the
very least, a mermaid theme.
This project is not interested in genre, fantasy, or overtly-campy
writing, so please consider if your work would fit the aims of this
Please send 3-5 poems in a word document. Previously published work will
be considered. If you send previously published work please let us
know. Please include a brief bio. Send poems to:
mermaidsinthebasement15ATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to .)
