I’m working with a small group of Coast Guard Vets to create a collection 100 original Sea Stories and publish the results as a hardback resource for entertainment and academic purposes. The idea is to pull 20 stories from historical sources, then find 40 new stories from the 20th century and 40 new stories from the 21st century: pulling from all the maritime sects, across time and cultures. The ultimate goal is to expose cultural difference/similarities and changes over these different dimensions.
We could use more stories. If it is set in the marine environment and is an authentic account, we want it. If you’re interest, follow the link below to find out more. Your story plus 99 others will be published with a brief bio of the author (you) so no anonymous writers please.
We will not edit for content. Most of the stories we have received so far are either heart felt or adventurous. Others have been grotesque, salty humor, and sporty. Our contributors are top heavy with Navy sailors and Coasties and we are trying to get away from this and find balance from other parts of the maritime.
Thanks in advance,
