Send IN Your Submissions
Send your stuff to IN, where careers can begin
By  IN House Staff

Boost your career. Send IN submissions.
We are now taking limited writing submissions for consideration. If chosen, your article will be used in Inkwell Newswatch (IN) and, you might even win our coveted Submission Award!

We are looking for writers who are talented, creative and experienced in the craft of writing and who are willing to educate and entertain their peers.

Our writers provide previously unpublished "how-to write" articles, author interviews, feature stories, writer lifestyle pieces, and writing industry news.

Currently we offer writers the opportunity to exchange articles for ads, excerpts and promotions of their existing work to our readership, as well as the placement on our masthead as a contributor [see below for further details].

These initial positions can lead to future paid assignments and writing opportunities, plus if you are good enough and consistent enough, you just might get a paid column within our publication.

Categories of interest:

Generally speaking, we are open to all how-to articles concerning all genres of writing, including but not limited to, fiction, non-fiction, children's lit, poetry, screenplays, theatrical plays, internet/technical and business.

To understand what quality of writing cuts the grade with us for inclusion in our publication, please read our publication before sending in a submission.

So, if you have something you would like to get credit for, receive free exposure, gain experience or an entry for your portfolio and see your work in print, let us know by following our guidelines below and sending us a submission or query.

All submissions and queries must be within the body of an email. No attachments of submissions or query letters will be opened.

If sending a submission please include (if possible) all of the following:

  • Author picture .jpg or .gif 100x100 max 10KB
  • Author bio max 50 words
  • Author website url and email address for publishing
  • Article content picture .jpg or .gif 200x230 max 20KB
  • Excerpt content within the body of submission email (see "Excerpt/Banner Explanation" below) max 500 words, currently published, not "to be published"
  • Excerpt picture (see "Excerpt/Banner Explanation" below) .jpg or .gif 200x230 max 20KB

- Picture files can be sent as attachments.
- Do not compress any files into an archive. Compressed files are automatically deleted.
- Do not send your actual submission or query as an attachment!

Excerpt/Banner Explanation:

In exchange for using your article we offer not only the opportunity to place your banner within our publication, we also offer an additional banner to be included in our rotator displayed throughout our website. If and when your submission is chosen we will give you the graphics' specifications and where to send them.

We will also, at times, run excerpts of your existing work to compliment your how-to article on writing, thereby also providing an example of what you do for our readers to see first hand.

If this is going to be the case and you are sending in a how-to write article and have an existing work already published, such as a book, screenplay, poetry, etc., please include a maximum excerpt of 500 words at the bottom of your submission.

You will also need to include the date it was published or used, who published or used it, and a web site link to where we can see the work. An ISBN #, if applicable, makes our life a lot easier as well.

If you have a picture that compliments your excerpt please send it along with your submission. The same goes for a picture that compliments your article. See above for picture file sizes and formats.

Traffic Swarm For Writers

Hottest Books This Month!

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer’s Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we’ve known;
Each writer’s block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It’s how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don’t plant your poem on the page
As though you’re hanging drapes;
It’s shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their “themes.”

Double Vision
A writer’s life is paradox,
It’s more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you’ll never quit.

It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem’s through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
