Inkwell Journal, a literary journal published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic narrative, visual art, and cross-form work. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically underrepresented. Thank you so much for considering us for the publication of your work. 

Send us your best work! We emerged from a creative writing program that found its community in artists from all disciplines, from literary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction to dramatic arts to graphic storytelling. If it works on the page, we may just publish it. 

The theme for Issue 36 is "Resilience." We are also considering general submissions, except in Visual Art, which should be a portfolio of 3-5 pieces to the theme only. Please send only one submission. 

We also yearn for more boundary-busting Creative Nonfiction, especially if you cross forms or employ graphic narrative.

Please See Me is an online literary journal that features health-related stories. The mission of the publication is to elevate voices and stories of vulnerable and underserved populations and those who care for them. At the heart of this publication is the cultivation of meaningful patient–provider partnerships in the spirit of wellness. To that end, we will publish work written by patients, family members, creatives, caregivers, and providers; anyone with a health-related tale to tell is invited to submit.

Each issue of Please See Me has a theme, though we consider any health-related story during this inflection point in time, and we encourage diverse voices to submit. Our Winter 2020 Issue #6 theme is "Bias" reflecting the need to curate narratives engendering empathy and understanding of those marginalized. Bias is widespread, touches all of us, and includes race, religion, physical appearance, age, mental/physical illness, social status and more.

akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.

We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

AKINOGA PRESS IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS/PROJECTS FOR CONSIDERATION

The next open consideration period will likely be some time in fall of 2021, but check back here (or akinogapress.com/submissions) for more details as things solidify.
