inkscrawl 44


inkscrawl is an online magazine devoted to minimalistic speculative poetry.
POETRY: inkscrawl features short speculative poetry of ten lines or fewer. Our definition of "speculative" is amorphous: we’ll know it when we see it. Elements and tropes of fantasy, science fiction, myth, folklore, fairy tales, and magic realism are welcome. Short poetry includes haiku, tanka, triolet and cinquain, but we are interested in seeing all kinds of poems 10 lines and under, regardless of form.

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.
