We publish 50 word fiction. We DO NOT publish poetry.
50 words doesn’t have to mean right on the button, but
it should be close. If it feels long, it is long.
When is a prose poem a poem and when is it prose?
Depends on what it sounds like when you read it aloud.
Our issues are generally themed and have submission periods
that open and close. Watch our website and social media
pages for details. Email inquiries always welcome.
Please send submissions in the body of an email.
Old schoolers and Luddites are welcome to use our PO Box.
No attachments or bios please.
We don’t open attachments and don’t want bios.
Send up to four pieces at a time, simultaneous submissions
are fine, just let us know if the piece is taken by another market.
We ask for unpublished work only.
If we publish your work, please do not submit for the next issue.
Should you find the theme of the next issue to be irresistible, okay
send your submissions, but then give it a break.
We take one time use of a piece, all rights remain with the author.
We have never done an anthology, but if we did we would ask you
for permission before using your work a second time.
We are not a paying market. Not that you don’t deserve it,
we just don’t have it. All contributors receive a free copy.
We request photography and original artwork of every issue. We put up a front and rear cover as well as three of pieces inside.
Blink-Ink is physically a small publication, 5 &1/2 half by 4 &1/4 inches (quarter page formant). We publish in black and white only.
Artwork submissions should be portrait style (vertical orientation).
Please send work that will reproduce well in such a small, simple format.
Anything we missed?
