Blink-ink looking for submissions for December

web site

Deadline: October 15, 2020
“Mercy” Blink-Ink Issue #42

Here are our guidelines for issue #42 out December of 2020.

“Mercy, mercy, mercy me.
Where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the wind that blow…”
Mercy, mercy, me. Marvin Gaye
Mercy will be the theme of Blink-Ink’s December issue. We are quite serious about this one. Humor or satire will certainly be considered, but it must be relevant.

Send us your best, unpublished work of approximately 50 words in the body of an email to: blinkinkinfo@gmail.com.

Submissions are open September 1st, through Oct. 15th.

No poetry, attachments, or bios please

“What we want, what we need, is civic grace and mercy.”
Senator Cory Gardner

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 We DO NOT publish poetry.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We ask for unpublished work only.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.
