Inch is a quarterly magazine 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 fewer. 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, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and Daniel Wallace, but we are equally committed to publishing the work of emerging authors.
Nonfiction: Our Fall 2012 issue will be dedicated to short memoir.
Submit by November 1, 2012. Our theory is, if life is too short, as
most agree it is, you shouldn't need more than 700 words. 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. Pays three copies.
We prefer electronic submissions. Submit your work online, and you will
be able to log in and check the status of your submission at any time.
