Description
The thing about mermaids is they have a tail problem.

It seems they either want to get rid of their tail so they can walk on land,

or they want to get their tail back, having somehow lost it so they could be on land.

Or, they fell in love with someone who doesn't have a tail…

It never seems to end. All we know for sure, is that it's a problem.

We want stories about mermaids. All kinds of stories about mermaids. Be creative!

There are no genre restrictions on this anthology, however the main premise of Mermaidens implies water-dwelling, fish-tailed women. Please keep this in mind if your story does not contain those elements. It will be up to the editors to decide if a non water-dwelling, un-fish-tailed woman (or merman) fits the theme well enough.


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.
