Submissions

inkblot. is looking for talented, psychologically-minded writers to contribute to our Editorial, News, and Literary sections. All inquiries should be directed to inkblot.blog@gmail.com. The content of inquiries are outlined below.

Editorial

Editorials on inkblot. cover a wide range of topics, from art reviews to political commentaries to critiques of recent advances in research and treatment. What they have in common is a critical psychological perspective that values multiple perspectives and sophisticated analysis. Editorials tend to be 500-2500 words long. (Longer features may be broken up into multiple posts.) Please email your idea(s) for the Editorial section in the form of a brief (50-150 words) pitch, along with a brief bio and links to at least two writing samples.

News

News posts are short, concise reports of recent developments in the world of psychology published elsewhere. These posts are typically under 100 words and link to the article(s) being referenced. If you are interested in contributing to the News section, please email a short bio and statement of interest.

Literary

inkblot. publishes original literary works that highlight psychological themes. Contributions need not explicitly be about psychology — rather, we value daring, incisive work that takes readers on complex, critical explorations of self, other, and the human condition. Acceptable forms of writing for the Literary section include poetry, flash fiction (less than 1000 words), short fiction (up to 5000 words), and memoir (up to 5000 words). Please email a short bio and statement of interest. If you are sending flash fiction or up to three poems, you may include those works directly in the email. For longer works, please send a synopsis of the piece you would like to publish with inkblot. along with links to one or two brief writing samples.
