Call for Submissions Featuring Gay Male Protagonists - The Touch of the Sea: Mermen and Selkies

Post date: 19 March 2011
Deadline: 1 July 2011

For The Touch of the the Sea, Lethe Press is seeking fantastical stories that feature mermen or selkies, doomed sailors, underwater ruins, the taste of salt on the lips and in the blood.

Have an idea? Written such a tale? The book will be edited by multiple Lambda Literary Award finalist Steve Berman.

- All submissions should feature gay male protagonists.
- Stories should be between 1,500 and 10,000 words in length.
- While some s3xual situations are fine for inclusion, this is not an er0tica anthology.

We have already accepted stories from such well-known writers as Jeff Mann and Adam Lowe.

Payment is 2 cents / word upon publication plus a contributor copy.

Email us at editor@lethepressbooks.com. Stories should be sent as RTF files.
