Guidelines for artists:
Ink & Letters publishes works in a variety of media—photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media, photographs of sculpture and installations, as well as graphic design pieces. Please submit hi-res graphics files (300 ppi) in the form of JPG or PDF. For full-bleed pages, please submit for a printable area of 8.5w x 11h for a single page and 11h x 17h for a two-page spread (don't forget to include an 1/8th inch bleed). Please include (where applicable) title, medium and dimensions. Though it's not a requirement, artists are encouraged to submit a rationale statement along with the work. Please include a biographical note of 75 words or less in the body of your e-mail.
Guidelines for writers:
Ink & Letters publishes works of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We encourage unsolicited submissions and give each submission careful consideration. Submissions of writing should be sent as e-mail attachments in .docx or .rtf format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Poets may submit up to five poems in a single document, not to exceed ten pages. Prose writers may submit only one piece at a time, not to exceed 3000 words. We are highly interested in shorter prose forms—flash fiction, micro memoir, lyric essays, hybrid forms, etc.—and up to three of these may be submitted in a single document. We welcome simultaneous submissions but ask that you e-mail us to withdraw a piece if it is accepted elsewhere. Our typical response time is within four weeks but sometimes longer, especially for work that advances to the final stages of our decision-making process; please do not query before three months have passed. Please include a biographical note of 75 words or less in the body of your e-mail.
