The “Moonlight” Issue Has Been Released

Issue #46, “Moonlight” has been mailed out. The issue has great writing, and equally great artwork. There are more copies available, so why not subscribe (or renew) before the January 1st 2022 price increase. Thanks to everyone who submitted their work, it make us wish we ran 100 pages rather that our usual 20. Soon we will have guidelines up for our next issue, and we hope to see you all there. Big things coming this year fro Blink-Ink, so watch out –

October 2021 Updates

Submissions for our “Moonlight” issue are closed as of 10/15/21.

Blink-Ink has exciting plans for 2022. We have the themes all set for the next two

issues, B47 in the spring of ’22, and B48 in the summer of ’22. Kitty Wang has her

own plans and will be busy for spring. January 1st, 2022 we are increasing our

subscription rates. The new prices are only a little higher, but the funds are needed

as expenses keep going up. Both our printer and postage are up for example.

Please consider subscribing, or getting someone a gift subscription. The old rate

applies till January 1st.

This year, as in pervious years, we will be nominating for The Pushcart Prize,

the Best Micro Fiction Awards, and the Best Small Fictions Award.

More information soon.

Of Special Note:

Frequent contributor, and long time friend Shoshauna Shy has something good going on here and we wanted to share it.
