Guidelines and About Us | Spilled Ink
We are Spilled Ink…
Spilled Ink is a journal of creative thought, is comprised of poetry, short fiction, essay, other creative prose, black & white art and photographs. Originally a printed quarterly, Spilled Ink has moved to exclusively publishing on the web. We put as much as is aesthetically pleasing inside it and there is no “theme.” We do stipulate though, that the art we accept be interesting and good.
Spilled Ink submissions must include a cover letter (we like to know how you heard of us). Include your name, e-mail address (indicate if you want it published as an active link), a short bio, and anything else you may feel is important (maybe a 300 x 200 pixel jpeg of yourself).
Do not hesitate to submit to Spilled Ink:
*NOTE: Subject must contain the word “submission” or it will be filtered as SPAM
