Submission Guidelines

We would love to review and consider publishing your short stories, creative non-fiction (creative narrative), poetry, and/or B&W photography. If you are interested in submitting to us, these are the submission guidelines:

Send submissions to

  • Maximum word count: 2,000 words.
  • In your e-mail, include your name as you would like it to appear in the publication, your major, and your year
  • Include your submissions as attachments (either .doc for written work or .jpg for photos)
  • No PDFs, please
  • Label files with last name and title of work (e.g. “last, first_title”)

(All guidelines subject to staff discretion)

Other Notes:

  • Please send high-quality files for photography submissions
  • There is no limit on how many submissions you may send us. If sending multiple submissions, you may attach them as separate files, or include them all in one document
  • The Inkslinger Editing Staff considers submissions as final products

*The selection process for Inkslinger is competitive. On average, 30% of students who submit their work are selected for each semester’s publication



  1. How do you guys feel about little comic strips? But not like Garfield, more like little Graphic Novellas—serious pieces, packed with meaning, love, and all that jazz.
