Call for submissions: Indian Ink – bi-monthly magazine

24 November 2012

Indian Ink, a bi-monthly magazine, is a locus for creative expressions in English, and aspires to address the lacunae in the little magazine circuit. The sober realization that Kerala has not been able to sustain the sporadic attempts at establishing a literary space for creative writing in English, explains the rationale for launching Indian Ink. Accommodating established and new voices in a happy mix, Indian Ink aims for a pan Indian reach, and will have room for artistic innovations, mixed genres and dialogues among languages and regions.

Indian Ink, a well-received and beautifully illustrated little magazine in print,

published from Kerala, India, is open to  flash fiction, poems, creative non-fiction,

translations, art work, jokes, reviews, sms poems and irregulars.

Submissions (of less than 120 words), with a short bio, may be mailed to: indian.ink.mag@gmail.com.
