blink-ink seeks 50 word fiction

web site

Deadline: July 15, 2020

Mom’s mac and cheese with cocktail wieners or a favorite meal you like to make. Tasty fare or a hard slog through a dismally over-done Sunday dinner. Dining delights dreamed of when there is little to hand. What else can we “cook up at home”, a plan, a scheme intertwined with adventure. Sure smells good, so tell us in fifty words or so what’s cooking be it real, imagined, or impossible. Submissions are open June 1st through July 15th. Send submissions in the body of an email to blinkinkinfo@gmail.com

No poetry, bios or attachments please.

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 We DO NOT publish poetry.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.

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We ask for unpublished work only.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.
