Our issue, “Mercy” has hit the mails. This is our 42nd issue since 2009 and we are very proud of it. The covers are provided by returning artist Clifford Thompson. The contribution authors are all strong writers. Names you know and names you may not, but all good. With this issue come another publication. It is “Jane Doe” from our sister press The Mambo Academy of Kitty Wang. We are very pleased to welcome Maiya Winter as our cover artist. A January 23rd Zoom reading for Jane Doe is planned, so please keep an eye out for that. Subscriptions are available, just in time for the holidays, Shortly we will reopen submissions with an all new theme, so please watch for that as well. Thanks Doug & Sally
We are ecstatic after reading a very recent review of issue #30, the “Diner” issue of Blink-Ink.
Kat Haas at NewPages was kind enough to say some nice things about Blink-Ink and the issue in general, but more importantly she wrote her take (and praise) of individual writers and their work. That’s a really classy thing to do. We wish to thank Katy, Nicole, and everyone else at NewPages for this great review, and more importantly for what they do every day to promote our indie press / small press community. Here is a link to the interview
Blink-Ink would like to congratulate Sally Reno. She has been nominated by our sister publication,
The Mambo Academy of Kitty Wang, for her piece “Just Like Jesse James” which appeared as
an insert in the recent “Outlaws” issue.
Watch for more from both Kitty and Sally this fall.
Recently The note worthy writers blog The Review Review did just that and did a review of Blink-Ink. It is most interesting to read how they perceive us, what the liked and what they didn’t. Special thanks to Joanne Spencer who wrote the article, and thanks to all staff members at The Review Review for their continued work to improve and enlighten in our world of independent press publication. Well worth reading the article about Blink-Ink, and we recommend you sign up for their free weekly newsletters.
Today on Nation public radio there was a very good piece on flash fiction, and Blink-Ink got a solid mention! Blink alums Paul Beckman, and Tom Hazuka were on the show as well as writers Meg Pokrass, Ben White (twitter fiction), and Rachael Fershleiser (6 word fiction). The show is archived online so you can hear the whole thing at npr.org, and find the Colin McEnroe show for 05.19.16. Thanks to everybody, and especially thanks to Tom and Paul.
