The Enchanted Forest
The Midsummer issue of Blink Ink invites you to take a walk in The Enchanted Forest. We are seeking stories of about 50 words to do with encounters with the sublime and the numinous. A woodland setting and perhaps some wildlife would be lovely but are not strictly required. We are especially interested in that threshold moment, that twist in the path, where you you realize you aren’t in Kansas anymore, when you know you have entered The Enchanted Forest. Submissions will be open from April 1st to May 10th, 2017. We publish fiction of approximately fifty words. Include submissions in the body of an email to email@example.com No bios, no attachments, and no poetry please.
We are very excited about the new issue,#27, “One Eyed Jacks & Deuces Wild”. There is a tremendous amount of talent presented here in our 24 pages mega format. Old friends and new. Please make a fuss on social media when you get yours, or contact us to make arrangements. Paypal available for subscriptions, and word to the wise, the rates are going up in July. Not sure, want to dip your toes? Sample copies also available. They do more good in the world than on a shelf no matter how great they are. Here is a photo of 200 copies that went out earlier today. Can you pick out which one is yours?
Ides of march is upon us (look out Julius!) and issue #27, the “One eyed Jacks & Deuces Wild” issue has closed. We received a record number of submissions. being a mega issue we are running 24 pages and still not enough room for all the great work that came in. We plan to ship the issue on or before April first and will announce our next issue and it’s theme at about the same time.
Just a quick mention, but it looks like our subscription price will be going up this summer. Not much, but up is still up. Subscribe now at the lower rate and think how smug you will feel.
