Idle Ink is an independent zine published in Hull, which features the weird and wonderful inner workings of emerging creatives.

This is a zine for the people.

Idle Ink publishes short stories, illustrations, photography, poetry, paintings, articles, memoirs, scripts, comics, essays, sonnets, psychography, vignettes, letters, doodles, hieroglyphics, tantrums, cave drawings, and any other art forms you can suggest. We’re interested in seeing work from any type of creative person, with any level of experience. We encourage our contributors to support each others’ work, and we love seeing them go on to do great things. There’s no elitism here!

You can get your copy from Etsy for just £2 (+ £1 p&p).
