Editorial Focus

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. 

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. 

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.
