Infernal Ink Magazine
is a quarterly magazine focused on publishing extremely dark, sexually
charged fiction and poetry. In addition to our violently erotic
fictional offerings, we have interviews and other
non-fiction content that explore and expose
reader to artists and acts of a diabolically sinful nature. This
magazine is not for the faint of heart or prudish.
You may follow us on Facebook for updates and news regarding the magazine and our contributors. For all other information and inquires, see the links and submission guidelines posted below or email our editor, Hydra M. Star, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

pieces that have sexual or erotic elements. Blasphemy, gore, and sex are what we’re all about.
and poetry with graphic adult content, harsh language, and graphic
violence are not only accepted, they are favored. So long as a piece

give it consideration.
are not looking for stories and poetry about Hell, the Devil, or
Satanists that rely heavily on traditional or mainstream religious dogma,
misconceptions about Satanism, or cliches. We are equally not interested in pieces which read like preachy
cautionary tales offering warnings against involvement with the
paranormal or occult. We also tend not to like zombies or romantic
vampires. That’s not to say we won’t take any zombie, vampire, or
Satanic stories or poetry. Quite the opposite is true, but such
pieces have to be something really special and different.
