Untamed Ink


We seek to be a go-to journal for contemporary poetry. We know you work hard & take your work seriously. We will too.


We invite submissions of poetry and fiction.

IF YOU ARE READING BIG BRIDGE & LIKE IT, WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR WORK & WE HAVE STREAMLINED THE SUBMISSION PROCESS FOR YOU. Rather than requiring snail mail, just e-mail your submissions in a single attachment to: untamedink@lindenwood.edu Use the body of the e-mail for your cover letter & state that you found us through Big Bridge. Standard response time is from 10-12 weeks.

Simultaneous submissions are okay as long as you notify us if accepted elsewhere.


Untamed Ink publishes the best poetry we receive from those submitted. We ask that you send no more than six to eight poems per submission. We have accepted from one to four or five poems from a single author.


All fiction manuscripts should be double-spaced. Fiction submissions typically have a limit of 10,000 words. We also publish flash & micro fiction. We recommend writers familiarize themselves with fiction from previous issues before submitting.
