About

Mermaids in the Basement is an anthology seeking original poems of mermaid poetry. This project is interested in poems that push the mermaid myth and figure into a new light. Submissions should not simply retell the mermaid and her classic story but establish new facets in which to read, question, admire, interrogate, and fear this fantastical siren. Poems need not mention mermaids directly but must suggest, at the very least, a mermaid theme. This project is not interested in genre, fantasy, or overtly-campy writing, so please consider if your work would fit the aims of this anthology.
