Inch logo

Inch is a quarterly magazine devoted to the most compressed literary work, whether it’s poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction. We believe that good things come in small packages, so we focus our eight pages on poems of one to nine lines, or prose of 750 words or fewer. Don’t send us a few good lines or paragraphs– send us complete poems and stories that bite, resonate, or sleep with giants. We’ve published work by acclaimed authors, such as Betty Adcock, Roxane Gay, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and Daniel Wallace, but we are equally committed to publishing the work of emerging authors.
