Open Submissions

General submissions of work to Dead Ink are now closed.

We do regularly open theme-specific submissions – please check the blog for recent announcements. If you want to stay up-to-date with our submissions calls then consider joining our mailing list.

Response Times
Dead Ink is a small press run by a small team. We aim to respond to most submissions calls within 1 month of the deadline, but we have been known to take up to three. Please note that for novels, such as the New Voices series, response times can be much longer. This is due to the large number of submissions that we receive.

All submission queries should be directed to
