Brigids Gate Press




Description
We’re looking for stories, poems, and drabbles about malevolent mermaids, sinister sirens, scary selkies, and other deadly and dangerous women of the deep blue sea.


This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
