From the Depths: Spring Issue 2013
Theme: Tributes
Media: Online/Electronic/Print
Publication Date: March 2013
Deadline: February 28, 2013

Haunted Waters Press is currently seeking works of prose, creative nonfiction and poetry for the Spring 2013 issue of our quarterly literary journal, From the Depths. We are looking for short stories of 3500 words or less, flash fiction of any length, creative nonfiction of 1500 words or less, and poetry. Selected works may also appear as part of our online literary content.

The Spring 2013 issue of From the Depths will feature works which pay tribute to someone who has touched the life of another. Think passionate testimonials to lovers, loved ones, friends and companions; or a simple acknowledgment of a teacher, neighbor, pastor or stranger. Share stories of extraordinary sacrifice, a life saved, or one small act with life altering consequences. Stretch the boundaries with faithful pets, places of the heart, or trinkets passed down through generations. As always, we seek writing that comes from the heart creating an emotional connection with our readers and poetry that is clear, meaningful and accessible. We look forward to reading your work!

Update: The editorial staff is in the process of selecting the final works to be included in the Spring 2013 issue of From the Depths, but there is still time to submit. In addition to the suggested topics above, we are still hoping for a tribute piece featuring a soldier’s story and perhaps one with a connection to 9-11. Submit your work today!

For full submission details visit the Haunted Waters Press Submissions page. Cheers!

    Thank you. I’m learning and will always remember my first flash fiction was encouraged by you!

    Susan, I’m quite new to answering inquiries but would like clarification on this. “We seek previously unpublished works unless otherwise stated in the call for submissions.” So if I pull a piece from the archives of my blog, is that considered “published”?

    • Susan Warren Utley

      Hi Georgette! Personal blogs are usually our only exception to the “unpublished work” rule. It can get tricky if the blog or author’s site is hosted on a site that is authorized to share or distribute your work. (Always read the fine print!) If you decide to submit work published on a personal blog, be sure to provide a link to the published piece and state that you own the copyright to the work and first publication rights have not been granted elsewhere.
