Founded in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2015, Blue Ink Press was formed to help authors navigate the daunting and confusing world of publishing. While our focus was initially on middle grade and young adult books, we now represent authors of all genres and are actively seeking new works to expand our catalogue.
We are a coalition of editors and publishing professionals working together to make our authors successful, and our goal is to grow slowly but steadily by publishing books we love.
We support our authors with quality editing and commercial covers, and partner with them to market their books. We work to bridge the gap between traditional and self-publishing by publishing our authors in both digital and print simultaneously while offering higher royalties than the Big 5. We truly believe in a publisher / author partnership. Our authors’ successes are our successes.
New Texas seeks to feature the voices of those questing, questioning, and envisioning the possibilities of and coming from Texas in fiction, poetry, critical and creative non-fiction, photography and multi-media.
Written submissions should generally range from 1000 to 5000 words and be double-spaced. Use MLA style.
The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.

The Nasiona’s mission is to cultivate the seeds of nonfiction. We publish and promote narrative-led work that explores the human condition. We focus on creative works based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch.
Be familiar with our content and submit pieces that fit what we're about. Though we are a nonficiton magazine, we lean toward creative nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and nonfiction poetry. We try to steer away from position essays that try to persuade the reader to take a side on an issue. Instead, we look to disclose new worlds through the lens of personal experiences.
Submissions not conforming to our guidelines will be deleted without a response. Please read our submissions page.
