About Inkspill Magazine is a platform for emerging creative and literary talent. It aims to showcase writers with fresh, original voices who might struggle to get noticed in the crowded commercial market. Our mantra is: Don’t be afraid to spill some ink. We believe in being unafraid of making a mess in the name of creative experimentation. In order to construct something extraordinary, you must first deconstruct the ordinary. www.inkspillmagazine.com hello@inkspillmagazine.com
