The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Mermaids Monthly - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
Everything should in some way relate to merfolk. We are loose about how you want to define that. We would love to see creative interpretations of the theme, and we’re also extremely interested in seeing work from writers of many backgrounds. Our staff includes BIPOC and queer people who are excited to explore diverse mermaid bodies, cultures, genders, abilities, religions, neurotypes, ethnicities, and more.

We are interested in happy and sad, light and dark, funny and serious. Most of all, we want to see what you most want to share.
