Inklette: Now Accepting Essays, Fiction, Poetry

Written by Ella Peary | December 31, 2015

Inklette is a newborn literary quarterly that’s growing up fast. This fledgling project began just over a year ago as a humble e-newsletter, and then quickly took flight across the world, publishing emerging and established authors from the United States, Brazil, Turkey, and India. Produced by high school and college students from around the country, this magazine is a writer’s read. It’s made for lovers of language, the “ink-hearted,” as Inklette puts it. At Inklette, they’re driven by a simple faith that words have the power to propel us beyond ourselves. They don’t just publish writing; they publish writers. That is to say, they seek authenticity that can only come from one person: you.

Inklette is published online four times a year, and right now, until January 15, 2016, they’re accepting submissions for their second issue. At Inklette, they value the author-editor relationship and aim to give feedback about each and every piece they receive. So, submitting authors should wait patiently for a response, which should come within about one month.

Nonfiction writers may submit one piece—an essay, memoir, or work of creative nonfiction—1250 words or fewer. Fiction writers may submit one piece of flash fiction—250 words or fewer—a novel excerpt—2500 words or fewer—or a short story—1250 words or fewer. Poets may submit up to three poems, each 500 words or fewer.

Inklette accepts submissions online, but not via post or email. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that writers immediately withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
