I have no knowledge of this publishing company, but it may be of interest to our writers. As far as I can remember we've never yet had Water as a Writing Club Theme. :)

She is the water between us, the water within us, the water that slakes thirst, from which we were born. Water is the natural and the sacred, the functional and the necessary. All over the world, in cultures young and old, water is life and from this force, great adventures, quests, and legacies begin. And whether it is still, moves, rises, or falls, water fills us. Imagine what stories and strange tales can be told from the depths of its depths.
 
TROUBLE THE WATERS: Tales from the Deep Blue will be a new anthology of water-themed speculative short stories that explore all kinds of water lore and deities, ancient and new as well as unimagined tales. We want stories with memorable, engaging characters, great and small, epic tales and quieter stories of personal and communal growth. Science fiction, fantasy, horror, interstitial, and unclassifiable works are welcome. We are seeking original stories in English (2500 – 7000 words; pays 6 cents per word) from writers of all walks of life from this beautiful planet and will accept some select reprints (pays 2 cents per word). Deadline: November 1, 2017. Projected publication: November 2018, Rosarium Publishing, www.rosariumpublishing.com. Please send submissions as a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file in standard mss formatting with your name, title, and word count to: TroubletheWaters2018@gmail.com
 
Please note that we are unable to accept simultaneous or multiple submissions.[/quot

Whether I submit or not, they have an engaging website and mission. I love that someone is obviously following their dream Plus, they're in Greenbelt, MD, only 40 miles or some from me. Thanks, LT!

Greenbelt's an interesting community. My son played the key role in a production of The Graduate there - with nudity hahahaha. They broke the bed in one performance. My wife was mortified but I couldn't stop laughing.
