Incliner accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art each year between September 15th and January 15th. Submissions received at any time other than this will not be considered.
We accept only electronic submissions. Send 3-5 poems, 1-2 short stories or other prose works, or 3-5 images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attach submissions: poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction as word.docs or rtf attachments, and images of visual art as jpgs.
We read and respond as quickly as we can (1-3 months).
Include a brief note &/or bio with your submission. Visual images should be accompanied by a 1-3 paragraph artist statement.
We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
Since Incliner is published out of the Art Academy of Cincinnati, a four year college of art and design, we’re looking for work in all genres that reflects and pushes the envelope of contemporary artistic interests, strategies and practice. In general, our sensibility covers a whole range of contradictory impulses, ideals, crushes, and structures—from the reckless to the sublime, from absurdity to the grave. More than anything, though, we want to be moved—inspired to make work of our own, to have a conversation, to experience something of what it means to be human in our time.
