Inkwell is the student literary magazine at Bethany Lutheran College. We publish a print issue annually in the spring. We also regularly feature content on The Well, our online magazine. 

Please visit our website for more information. See the categories below for specific submission information and guidelines. 



Inkwell regularly features fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, book and event reviews, interviews, as well as musings on writing and the writing life on The Well, our blog. The sky is the limit! Submissions are open to BLC students, alumni, and faculty/staff. We accept submissions to The Well year-round, and provide editorial feedback to contributors.  

Please include a cover letter with your submission and tell us a bit about yourself and the piece you're submitting. 

 Inkwell is open for submissions for its 2022 print issue. 

  • At this time, we only welcome submissions from Bethany students, alumni, and staff. We look for quality, polished pieces that represent the best of the Bethany community’s creative work. 
  • Inkwell does not accept previously published work.
  • Submissions should be attached as either .doc, .docx, .pdf or .jpeg files.
  • Multiple submissions are accepted. IF YOU WISH TO SUBMIT MULTIPLE PIECES, PLEASE upload multiple files to your single submission rather than submitting multiple times.
