Indigo Ink Press 4

Do not submit here! This project is believed to be defunct.


Founded in 2009 in Canton, Ohio, by Jessica Bennett, Indigo Ink is a nonprofit independent publisher of fiction, poetry and art. Our mission is to publish meaningful, creative and immersive fiction and poetry, as well as provocative artistic non-fiction. We promote extraordinary works by writers and artists, works that we believe are vital to the evolution of the landscape of literary America. Through a strategic mix of traditional, print on demand and electronic publication formats, Indigo Ink will put influential prose, poetry and art in the hands of an eager audience.
FICTION: We accept novel-length literary fiction from contemporary storytellers (please no short stories unless you’re submitting as part of one of our planned anthologies). We’re not interested in straight genre fiction like fantasy, science fiction, horror, romance, western, etc. But if you have an incredible piece of writing that includes touches of these genres, we’d love to read it.
POETRY: Indigo Ink plans to publish at least one chapbook of poetry each year.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
