Black Ink Fiction's Daily Drabbles guidelines for November (from the 9/19/22 BIF newsletter):
November Daily Drabbles
There will be a weekly theme announced in our newsletter a month ahead, and 7 drabbles chosen for each theme. The content can be any genre, and though BIF is a speculative fiction press, we will accept exceptional pieces from other genres.
Need to get those creative thoughts flowing? Try a drabble on for size! Use your writing skills to create a short work of fiction, precisely one hundred words in length. We have some themes below that can help you get started. Once you have written your submission, send it on over to BIFDrabbles@gmail.com. While the October submissions are now closed, the November themes are posted below.
Week 1: Candy
Week 2: Roads
Week 3: Leaves
Week 4: Thankful
Week 5: Turkeys
The deadline for these submissions is 10/15/22.
In order for your submission to be reviewed, please send it to BIFDrabbles@gmail.com. Your subject should include the theme and your name (ex: Snow - Wynona Writer). Include a short 50-word bio and 1 link in the document below the drabble.

White Enso has updated its contributor payment policy. In the past, each accepted writer would receive a "small honorarium." Going forward, payment will only be made for a handful of published pieces.
From the 9/15/22 White Enso newsletter:
There is one big change to White Enso. One work from each of the categories listed below will receive the White Enso award. That selection will receive an honorarium. The other selections highlighted in the journal will not be offered an honorarium.Categories:
Japanese-style poetry (haiku, haibun, rengay, waka, etc.)
