GENERAL SUBMISSIONS CLOSED. Check back in May, 2023 for Tell-Tale Inklings #7.
**** No simultaneous submissions! ****
Narrative poems (50-line maximum)
Flash fiction (1,000-word maximum)
-The poem or tale must have a beginning, middle, and end and reveal something about the character(s). It needn’t be an Earth-shattering secret or flaw, but thought-provoking or emotionally evocative.
-Edgar Allan Poe avowed that a story ought to be readable in its entirety in one sitting. Who are we to argue?
-Another time period, foreign planet...would be refreshing, interesting. But kindly don’t challenge our taste buds. Gratuitous sex, graphic violence--anything defamatory/hateful, rantingly political, et cetera will not be published. Mess with our heads, not our stomachs!
CARVED-IN-PUDDINGSTONE FORMAT GUIDELINES
*Submit a maximum of 5 poems and/or two stories in the body of an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Include a short bio and your JPEG photo.
*Left-margin aligned, 12-pt. font. No creative spacing, thank you. It's a pain to cut and paste.
*No work previously published in print will be considered. Work that has appeared online may be submitted, but write a note with a link to the journal in which the work was published.
*SUBMIT ARTWORK as JPEGS ONLY.
*SUBJECT LINE: Tell-Tale Inklings Submission. "TTI Submit" is also fine. Just try not to irritate the hyperactive junk filter.
*Current payment is nothing but glory, and the writer relinquishes future monetary claims to any version of the publication (for example, an e-book ). TTC is a tiny, independent press. The publisher will be lucky to break even.
Thank you for your interest in the press! Mignon Ariel King Publisher & Editor email@example.com
