The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Myths Subverted - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

As the title suggests, we are looking for stories based on world myths and legends.
Your story may retell in an original way, deconstruct, or subvert existing myths or only use characters, heroes, deities from said myths to form an entirely original narrative.
Greek, Norse, Celtic, African, Eastern, Native American, Arthurian, etc. - all mythologies are welcome, no matter if well known or obscure.
