How to Submit

Inland is an online and print publication featuring personal essays, original reporting, interviews, photo essays, and fiction. We’re interested in diverse and weird stories about outsiders.

Topics we’d like to explore:

  • history vs. contemporary
  • the Midwest diaspora
  • immigrant communities
  • the deterioration of place and mindset
  • individualism vs. community
  • culture (how it is born, thrives, survives)

Word count for essays is 1000 - 1200 words. For reporting, interviews, and fiction, it is open and dependent upon the strength of the submission. 

This is a small, passion-project publication and there is currently no pay. We are starting a Kickstarter campaign to acquire funds to pay contributors.
