The 404 Ink magazine is rebranding and relaunching in summer 2019 and currently seeking submissions on the theme of SPACE. Submissions open for fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Deadline: 24 February 2019 at 23:55

The 404 Ink magazine is set for an exciting rebrand and relaunch (more to be revealed…) and we’re looking for your work to feature.

Issue 5 will be released in July 2019 and will be based on the theme of Space. We’re seeking interpretations as vast as the galaxy itself. What comes to mind when you think of Space? Another realm? Personal boundaries? How to take up your space? We can’t wait to hear your ideas.

To get you thinking, we’d suggest keywords of science, boundaries, existence and mystery. But feel free to let your imagination run riot!

From now on, the magazine will be structured in thematic pairs. We’re kicking things off with Issue 5: Space partnered with Issue 6: Earth. So get your thinking caps on, it’s never too early to start planning your next submission.

The magazine features fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We are not accepting submissions of comics for this issue (for now, at least). Please follow our submission guidelines (below).

Notes regarding publication in the 404 Ink magazine:
– Open to all genres, providing they relate to the theme of Space
– Due to the volume of submissions we receive, priority will be given to those pieces that appear most relevant to the theme
– We are open to both new and established writers
– Submissions must not have been previously published
– All contributors are paid, as well as receiving a free copy

– Fiction: 2,000 words, one piece
– Non-fiction: 2,000 words, one piece

We ask that you also include a 50 word bio with your submission.
