Call for Submissions

May is an open submissions month for the Ink-Filled Page. If you're a writer or an artist, take note:

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. We operate primarily off of donations of time and money. To sponsor an anthology or to get involved, e-mail

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.

E-mail all submissions to with a 100-word bio and "Fiction Submission," "Nonfiction Submission," or "Artwork Submission" in the subject bar. The submissions deadline for the summer 2008 issue is Saturday, May 31.

All work must be original and unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are accepted on the condition that you notify us immediately upon acceptance by another publication. By submitting your work to the Ink-Filled Page, you are offering first online and North American print publication rights. Authors and artists retain all other rights.

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

Literary Submissions

Fiction submissions can be short stories or novel excerpts, 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 5,000 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 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.
