Dangerous Waters: Deadly Women of the Sea

Felt creative. Might submit later.

Do you ever write specifically for a submission call?

I just did for the first time. Yesterday, I saw a call from Brigids Gate Press looking for dark fantasy stories “about malevolent mermaids, sinister sirens, scary selkies, spirits, and other deadly and dangerous women of the sea.”

I do have quite a bit of experience out on the ocean, so I figured I’d give it a go, and five or six drafts later, I’m feeling pumped on this story! I’d like to get another set of eyes on it before I submit, so if anyone feels like critiquing a ~2500 word short, let me know!
