Blink-ink seeks True Crime flash fiction

web site

Bang Bang Bang! Three shots rang out and you sent us your best “True Crime” stories of approximately 50 words. Not necessarily ripped form the headlines, not necessarily noir, but definitely something stylish and against the law!

Sharp suits, space-boots. High class, diving trash. Scraping by, living high. Times gone by, right this sec, next big thing. Tell us all.

Submissions are open September 1st through October 15th, 2019.

Send submissions in the body of an email to: blinkinkinfo@gmail.com

General guidelines & information on our website www.blink-ink.org
We respond to all submissions & inquiries.


We publish 50 word fiction. We DO NOT publish poetry.

50 words doesn’t have to mean right on the button, but

it should be close. If it feels long, it is long.

When is a prose poem a poem and when is it prose?

Depends.

Depends on what it sounds like when you read it aloud.

Our issues are generally themed and have submission periods

that open and close. Watch our website and social media

pages for details. Email inquiries always welcome.

Please send submissions in the body of an email. blinkinkinfo@gmail.com

Old schoolers and Luddites are welcome to use our PO Box.

No attachments or bios please.

We don’t open attachments and don’t want bios.

Send up to four pieces at a time, simultaneous submissions

are fine, just let us know if the piece is taken by another market.

We ask for unpublished work only.

If we publish your work, please do not submit for the next issue.

Should you find the theme of the next issue to be irresistible, okay

send your submissions, but then give it a break.

We take one time use of a piece, all rights remain with the author.

We have never done an anthology, but if we did we would ask you

for permission before using your work a second time.

We are not a paying market. Not that you don’t deserve it,

we just don’t have it. All contributors receive a free copy.
