inkscrawl features short speculative poetry of ten lines or fewer. Our definition of “speculative” is amorphous: we’ll know it when we see it. Elements and tropes of fantasy, science fiction, myth, folklore, fairy tales, and magic realism are welcome.

Short poetry includes haiku, tanka, triolet and cinquain, but we are interested in seeing all kinds of poems 10 lines and under, regardless of form.

inkscrawl is currently CLOSED for submissions and will probably reopen with a new themed call in late 2016.

Please send no more than FIVE poems per batch, to poetry at inkscrawl dot net. Payment for accepted poems is $3.
