Inch is a quarterly magazine, put out by Bull City Press, devoted to tiny poems and tiny fiction. 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.
You can find us here.
Fiction: Flash fiction. Microfiction. Sudden fiction. Call it what you will; Inch publishes the finest stories of 750 words or less. Submit one to three stories for consideration. Include a cover letter. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but please note in your cover letter if your story is submitted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work. All rights revert to the author upon publication, though we will occasionally ask if we may reprint fiction in our microfiction bonanza issues. Pays three copies.
Poetry: 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 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. Submissions that include poems longer than nine lines in length will be read and ignored.
The best way to know what we are looking for is to read our past issues. You can find them for sale at our website.
We prefer electronic submissions. Submit your work to Inch.
