New Category For “Inklings” Submissions

This year Eastern’s literary magazine, Inklings, is making a few changes, including collaborating with the Eastern University art club and adding a new category for submissions. For the first time, the art club, Society of Art and Illustration, will be designing the magazine’s cover. Also, students will now be able to submit cartoons and illustrations to Inklings. Other than this new submission category, Inklings also accepts poetry, creative non-fiction, essays, short stories, and photography.

Inklings is eventually hoping to create an online version of the magazine as well, though this is more of a future goal and may not be incorporated with this year’s edition.

Submissions are open to anyone who is interested. You can be from any major and faculty is encouraged to submit work as well. Senior editor, Lindsay Robbins, states that submitting to Inklings is a “great opportunity if you are thinking about publishing in the future.” She also states that it is great for future resumes.

The magazine does not have a theme and there is no limit to the number of pieces that one can submit, though Robbins suggests a cutoff at about three or four pieces. Including Robbins, there are currently seven editors that make up the Inklings’ staff: Heather McBride, Blake Plimpton, Mary Anne Bonner, Asia Williams, Zach Nelson, and Felisha Kissel. Professor Kat Hayes is the advisor. These editors will read the work that is submitted and, through collaboration, choose the pieces that will be included in this year’s edition.

If you are interested in submitting your work, you can send it directly to Lindsay Robbins at Submissions will close on April 12th, so make sure to get your work in by then. Also, be sure to check out Inklings on Facebook and support them by liking their page!
