inkCONCRETE is a publishing house modeled on new technology and a new way of making and selling books.

We concentrate on on works produced by creative arts practitioners.

We are currently seeking proposals for our two imprints; Foundation and Monolith.

Foundation is a series of multi-author anthologies that explore how a given theme impacts on their current arts practice. The current theme is 'Quiet'.

The Monolith imprint is a series of single author works where creative practitioners are encouraged to commit to print in interesting ways. This could be a novel, a script, a collection of documentation, photographs, critical essays and experimental narratives. We encourage artists to challenge the form of the book.

Using a combination of modern print on demand technology and online distribution with traditional typesetting and book design, we want to collaborate with our authors to make beautiful books full of interesting things. 

We also encourage digital copies to be sold under a 'pay what you want' model to make the work accessible to all. 

There are no costs and all profits will be split equally between each creator involved in a work.

More information can be found in the FAQ section here and on the About section of our website.

Who is eligible for this opportunity?
Anyone working in or around the creative arts, but especially creative arts practitioners.
When is the deadline?
The deadline for the 'Quiet' anthology is the end of April, however, Foundation imprint texts can be submitted at any time.
How many works can I submit?
You may submit as many works as you want.
How much does it cost?
Nothing. Please read the about page on our site about how we deal with money. However, we believe it shouldn't cost you anything to have your work published.
Are there payments to artists?
The answer is 'maybe'... we will split any profits made equally between all of the creators of a publication. In this case, inkCONCRETE counts as a single contributor.
What happens if my proposal is chosen?
We will be in touch! In the first instance we need to start a conversation about the form and the content. We can then talk about the full process to make sure you are happy with everything. Then, we make books!
What kind of proposals are you looking for?
We try not to dictate the responses or the ideas for proposals, rather, we encourage conversation. So, if you have an idea and want to try it out, we would love to hear from you. So far, we have started work on serialised script fragments, books of documentation and process, essays, photo essays, discursive works and experimental narratives.
What about copyright?
You will always have complete copyright of your work. That is very important to us. You can withdraw your work at any time too.
