Submissions

Inksight Magazine is an online platform that highlights underrepresented voices and topics.

In our main section, we publish exclusively feature articles that are connected to themes such as feminism, politics, social issues, the environment, mental and physical health, cultural criticism and beyond.

We also have a Books & Creative section where we publish poetry and short stories that relate to the aformentioned themes. 

Do get in touch if you’re not sure whether your article idea is suitable for Inksight!

Submission guidelines 

What is a feature?

A feature article is a type of news or human interest story that examines a topic in detail and is often structured around a narrative.

A feature article is different from a other news stories in its execution – it is an in-depth dive into a particular subject that offers inksight which usually gets left out of hard news (pun intended).

It is usually a long piece of slow or fast news – it can pertain to something that happened a day ago, a year ago, or a century ago. As long as it engages with the main themes mentioned above, you can write about a person, event, or topic related to any time in the past or present.

 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for (but not limited to) first and third person stories with strong opinions, unusual perspectives, and niche subjects. We love to see data and interviews used to enrich a story but it is not a requirement, especially in personal pieces.

We are particularly interested in publishing underrepresented voices – if you identify as LGBTQ+, a marginalised gender, have a disability, or are part of an ethnic or religious minority, please send us your pitch!

Above all, we want to publish voices that are starting out in the fields of journalism and/or creative writing, or simply individuals who are looking for an opportunity to try their hand at writing an article. 

 

How to pitch a feature article to us?

Please email your pitch to submissions@inksight.co.uk with ‘PITCH: Your Article Title’ in the email subject line.

Don’t wory if you haven’t sent a pitch before, just include a line or two about who you are and what you do, as well as a short paragraph describing your article idea and why you are the best person to cover the topic. 

We are happy to receive finished article submissions too, as long as you also include a short description of the article in the body of the email.

 

Books & Creative Writing

You do not need to pitch ideas for creative writing – if you believe your finished poem or short story fits our magazine’s themes, simply drop us an email with your work attached. 

Please make sure that your creative writing submission is no longer than five A4 pages, including poetry. 

We also welcome book reviews of up to 1000 words. 

 

Please send all your submissions to submissions@inksight.co.uk

 

* At the moment, all submissions to Inksight are entirely voluntary as the magazine is run not-for-profit and does not have a budget. Hopefully, this will change as the magazine grows.
