Call for Short Poems and Prose: Inch
Inch is a quarterly magazine devoted to tiny poems and tiny prose, and we're looking for great work for our upcoming issues. We believe that good things come in small packages, so we focus our eight pages on poems of one to nine lines, or fiction of 750 words or less. Don't send us a few good lines or paragraphs-- send us complete poems and stories that bite, resonate, or sleep with giants. We've published work by acclaimed authors, such as Betty Adcock, Michael McFee, Michael Chitwood, and Aimee Nezhukumatathil, but we are equally committed to publishing the work of emerging authors.
Prose is limited to 750 words or fewer. Submit one to three stories for consideration. Include a cover letter. Simultaneous submissions for prose are acceptable, but please note in your cover letter if your story is submitted elsewhere.
We are looking for smart, complete poems one to nine lines in length. Submit one to five poems with a cover letter. You may include more than one poem per page provided that you insert ample space in between. We don't accept simultaneous submissions for poetry.We do not accept previously published work or simultaneous submissions.
All rights revert to the author upon publication, though we will occasionally ask if we may reprint poems in our double-sized spectacular issues. Pays three copies.
