Call for Youth Submissions

Ink-Filled Page Call for Submissions
Spring 2008—Youth Issue

The Ink-Filled Page is a quarterly literary journal produced by Indigo Editing, LLC. The journal is published online quarterly, and we print an anthology annually.

Our youth issue features the artistic talents—both literary and visual—of youths aged eleven through eighteen. So polish your stories from English class, dust off your paintings from art class, and submit them for a chance to be published!

Literary Submissions:

Fiction submissions can be short stories or novel excerpts that can stand alone, and the nonfiction section is open to personal narratives and essays. While all genres are welcome, special interests include travel, multicultural themes, feminism, and magical realism.

Limit submissions to 3,500 words, one submission per candidate. Authors who submit more than one piece will not be considered. All submissions must be formatted in Times New Roman, 12-point font, and be double-spaced. Name, contact information, title, and word count should be at the top of the first page.

Artwork submissions:

Artwork submissions are open to all mediums, but pieces must be submitted electronically. Winning pieces are selected based on composition and originality. We are looking for pieces that highlight the human experience—show us the good or the bad, be surreal or real, but make sure that whatever you submit connects us, human to human.

Limit three submissions per candidate. Artists who submit more than three pieces will not be considered. Submit digital artwork at 300 dpi or higher.


Selected authors and artists earn publication and will receive a complimentary copy of the annual anthology. Authors will also receive professional editing services on the selected story. All work must be original and unpublished. By submitting your work to the Ink-Filled Page, you are offering first online and North American print publication rights. Rights revert to authors and artists after publication.

The youth issue accepts submissions from youths aged eleven through eighteen. E-mail all submissions to with a 100-word bio, including your age, and "Fiction Submission," "Nonfiction Submission," or "Artwork Submission" in the subject bar by Friday, February 29.

For best results, read our publication by downloading the most recent issue and buying the 2007 anthology from before you submit.
