The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

For Those Who Deserve to Exist
Inked in gray




Description
Limited Demographic: Those who identify as a marginalized individual or a person from a marginalized community.

We will be looking for passionate, visceral stories about rising up, overcoming, and righting (and rewriting) transgressions. The general theme is that of reclaiming narratives through the genres of horror, science fiction, and fantasy. In true Inked fashion: no sugar-coating, no watered down characters or situations. No punches pulled.

Words have the power to elicit change. Stories dispel stereotypes with insight, combat prejudice with perspective, and narrow the divide so we can see each other for what we all are: human.


This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
