Editorial Focus

Inkwell Journal, a yearly anthology published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic novel/memoir excerpts, visual art, and genre-blurring work, as well as translations. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically under-represented. 

Tips From the Editor

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.
