We’re here to observe the strange color of the sky and how some of the trees fail to look majestic. There’s beauty in all the weird and wild and we’re ready to wade into the water surrounded by the strange wood and words that you’re willing to give. So give us your strange, your weird. Give me the writers that have yet to have found their place to call home.

Bridge Ink focuses on young adult creative writers, ages 13 to 18. All genres are accepted with a focus on poetry. 

Our editors yearn to see something different, to learn from a piece of work, or to discover a new point of view. We are looking for young, honest voices daring enough to share those stories. How can a poem reveal an observation, emotion, or experience in a new or unique way? How can a story change a reader’s way of thinking? We want stories that open our minds to new possibilities.

The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
