From the Depths: Winter Issue 2012 (http://www.hauntedwaterspress.com/Submissions.html)
Theme: A Life Less Ordinary, Exceptional Works of Poetry & Fiction
Media: Online/Electronic/Digital Print issues forthcoming.
Publication Date: December 2012
Deadline: November 30, 2012

The anniversary issue of From the Depths will feature serious, character driven works focusing on the human experience. We are looking for elegantly written fiction and poetry that create an emotional connection with the reader. Think love and loss, triumph over adversity, defining moments in an otherwise mundane life, desperate measures in desperate times, ordinary people and extraordinary circumstances, the ends justify the means. Characters should be well developed, interesting, and complex, and may be morally or emotionally flawed. Good does not always have to prevail. While a fairy tale ending is fine, it must be believable and hard won. Poetry should be clear, meaningful and accessible. With attention to detail, it should capture a moment and create a snapshot from a life less ordinary.

Haunted Waters Press is currently seeking works of prose, creative nonfiction and poetry for the Winter 2012 anniversary 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.
