Some quotes from the vastly underrated Mrs. Fitzgerald to keep in mind when deciding whether and what to submit:
★ Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold. -- Zelda Fitzgerald
★ Something in me vibrates to a dusky, dreamy smell of dying moons and shadows. -- Zelda Fitzgerald
♡★♥ Awkward Mermaid is an online literary community and safe space for writers to share freely their experiences with mental illness.♥★♡
Think of it as a place where magic & mental illness can coexist.
And these can be personal battles you yourself have experienced, or it can be that of a loved one, a friend, a parent, etc. Whatever moves you; whatever it is you have to say on the subject. We're not here to define what an experience can be -- you are.
♡ We welcome all forms of creative writing: fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. As of now, we don't believe in word length: there are no minimums or maximums. We'll also take a look at any artwork (digital, etc.) submitted as well.
♡ Submissions will be posted on a rolling weekly basis. This may change later on, but for now, we'd like to publish several times a week.
✧ Eligible submissions include anything you have written/created that:
1. Is Original
2. Hasn't appeared anywhere else (like your own blog, etc.) *
((*this will differ for artwork and we'll tackle that aspect on an individual basis))
