Writing Guidelines

1. Submissions must be original fiction.

2. Please, no novels, or stories written for children. Stories must be YA compatible.

3. Submissions should be double spaced; 12-point Times New Roman font preferred. Name, contact info, and word count are required and should appear in the top left-hand corner.

4. Please email your submission as an attachment to: Inkbabes@gmail.com Kindly type “Submission – (title of your work)” in the email subject line.

5. When we accept a story for publication, we require first Electronic Publication Rights until publication date.

Note: Since most magazines will not publish pieces that have been published in print or on the web, for all intents and purposes after your work is published by us it can only be marketed as a reprint, which severely limits the number of markets that will accept it, and drastically reduces the pay rate it can receive. It is up to you, the author, to decide if publishing your work in our anthology, giving up your First Publishing Right for no payment other than an electronic copy and exposure, is really what you want to do.

6. Once we’ve published your story, you are free to include it in your own collection or submit it elsewhere.

7. Simultaneous submissions are fine; we ask that you please email us immediately should a submitted piece be accepted elsewhere.

8. We will contact you by email if your work is accepted for publication.
(We never share your contact information without your permission.)

9. There is no monetary compensation. Author will receive EXPOSURE and an electronic copy ONLY.  Any questions or concerns, please contact us at: Inkbabes@gmail.com

10. Thank you for your submission.
