Sundress Publications Announces
Call for Anthology on Mermaids
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 anthology.
Please send 3-5 poems in a word document. Previously published work will be considered, but please notify us where the work first appeared. Be sure to include a brief biography as well.
Send all submissions to Trista Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sundress Publications is currently closed to manuscript submissions.
