Running Out of Ink

We are a new webzine that just launched its third issue on the 1st January at We accept short stories of all genres as variety is going to be a focus of our webzine - no story too short, no plot too off the wall as we counter balance it with other stories within the issue. The only rules are that the story is previously unpublished and under 2500 words.

We don't yet pay our writers unfortunately, but feel this is a fantastic opportunity for new writers to gain a voice and experienced writers to add to their CV. One thing that does pull us apart from other markets and may make your followers keen is that we are interested in having recurring writers throughout our issues, so if we really like you we will request you back. This can really help in building a following for writers as readers from the site will go on to see Joe Bloggs' latest story and knowing that they consistently enjoy them, they may look elsewhere to see what he's done. Submissions are emailed to
We obtain First Electronic Rights. For the period that a piece remains in our current issue (one month), we ask the writer does not publish the piece anywhere else. Afterwards, it will remain in our archives but we do not obtain any ownership of the piece so the writer is free to do as they wish afterwards. If we wish to use the piece again in the future, we would first obtain permission. 

Please let me know what you think and we look forward to reading some submissions from your group.

Kind regards
