The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Water: Selkies, Sirens and Sea Monsters - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
Tyche Books




Description
Water is the most yielding of all elements, changing to fit its container, whether that be a thimble or a lake bed. At the same time, anyone who has ever watched the unrelenting progression of a tsunami understands its raw power. It is the tranquil azure of a tropical sea, the tumultuous waves and whitecaps of an ocean embroiled, or the insidious progression of overflowing from a riverbed and encroaching on people’s homes. As many faces as water may wear, the creatures within and associated with it have even more.

For this, the fourth and final anthology in this series, I’m looking for stories about shapeshifting selkies, deceptively beautiful sirens, all the monsters of the deep and any other magical water creature you can imagine—water dragons, naiads, kappa, kelpies… If it’s a magical being associated with water, I want to read about it.


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.
