Not every accepted submission will receive compensation. However, four cash prizes will be awarded; one prize will be given for the most exemplary piece in each submission category.
Frequently Asked Questions
What document type should I use for submissions?
Please submit your work as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file.
When will I hear back about my work?
We carefully review every submission; this process often takes several months. For the Fall edition, you can expect to hear back by December 20th. For the Winter edition, you can expect to hear back by April 20th.
What kind of submissions is Inscape looking for?
Can I submit the same piece more than once?
If a piece you submitted was initially rejected, we gladly welcome that piece again—but only if you have given it sturdy revisions and edits.
Can I submit more than one piece?
We are happy to accept multiple submissions. You may submit up to two pieces per literary category and five pieces for visual arts.
Can I submit my work to other journals?
You may; we accept simultaneous submissions. If you are accepted to publish at Inscape, we ask that you withdraw your work from other journals. If you are accepted to publish elsewhere but would rather be published at Inscape, we ask that you contact us right away, requesting our decision.
