A Year in Ink Volume 10 Submissions

Read about Volume 10 from our editor, Judy Reeves!

A Year in Ink (YII) is an anthology of the creative work of San Diego County writers, published each year by San Diego Writers, Ink. The annual publication represents a sampling of the tangible results of our community’s diligent scribblers.

Volume 10 will include short stories, novel and memoir excerpts, creative nonfiction, satire, flash fiction and nonfiction, and poetry. Every year our Anthology authors are a diverse group, young and old, new writers and much-published veterans.

SDWI receives numerous submissions each summer;  A Year in Ink follows a blind submission process; authors are not identified until the selection process ends.
