call for submissions: First Inkling
- First Inkling is an international print and online literary magazine dedicated
to publishing the most talented student authors in the English language. We are
excited to announce that our Inaugural 2012 Issue debuted on October 27th, 2011.
We would like to invite students from the US and around the world, working
towards any degree, to submit original compositions for consideration for
publication in our 2013 issue of First Inkling.
First Inkling offers incredible opportunities for talented student authors. We
will distribute the magazine to an international literary and university
audience, where we expect it will be reviewed by publishers, editors, and
literary agents. In addition, all works published in First Inkling will be
entered in the Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker competition. As you know,
the Pacemakers are the Pulitzer Prize of student journalism. The submission will
also be eligible for a prestigious Sammy Award (The Sam Draper Award for
Literary Excellence)which includes a $750.00 cash prize in each genre.
We are highly selective, and competition is fierce, but I have no doubt in the
quality of writing at your campus. Submissions must not exceed 25 typeset
pages, and must fall into one of the following genres: short story, poem,
graphic (i.e., comic) short, one-act play, or drama. Submissions must be
received by September 1st, 2012.
Please go to
to submit. Thank you.
