Visible Ink

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


For our 29th issue, our theme is: 'The End'

Now, that may sound a little bleak, but justifiable, given our current circumstances—it really seems lately like we are slouching towards the apocalypse. However, not many know, but the word apocalypse originally meant “truthful revelation". Or, maybe you can find inspiration in the words of Kurt Vonnegut: "Nothing in real life ever ends".

We are encouraging applicants to broadly interpret this concept of “The End”, considering how it applies to varying aspects of the human experience.

All authors and artists retain copyright over their work, however, by submitting, grant Visible Ink a non-exclusive irrevocable license to publish their content in any format. Visible Ink will be paying contributors for their input in the completed anthology.

We at Visible Ink recognise the institutionalised violence and oppression of marginalised voices, and encourage submissions from refugees, people of colour, members of the LGBTI community, those of lower socio-economic backgrounds, those with diverse backgrounds and those with impairments/disabilities.

Submissions enquiries can be sent to
