- 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.
