Goddesses of the Sea Anthology Call:
Mermaids and Sea Maidens Anthology
Submission Period: March 26th-June 5th
Word Count: 500-15,000
The sea is a dark and mysterious place. What lurks within the deepest caverns, unseen by those above? A haunting melody drifts across the waves, a beautiful figure floats in the shallows. Do you follow? Do you answer the sea's hypnotic call? An anthology for mermaids, sea goddesses, sirens, and other mysterious creatures of the deep.
Any time period and sub-genre (including futuristic sci-fi) are accepted, however there must be a fantasy/mythological/supernatural sea maiden featured in your story. In other words, stories about being on the sea without that component, or stories about regular sea creatures will not be accepted. There needs to be a CLEAR mystical element and not just vague hints to one.
