“The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.” — Kate Chopin
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 editing 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 sexual situations are fine for inclusion, this is not an erotica 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 [email protected]. Stories should be sent as RTF files.
Deadline for submissions is July 1st.
