Submitting Work for Mush

Due date extended: Submissions for the 2022 issue due Jan. 30, 2022 (midnight, CST).

All amateur artists, musicians, and writers are invited to submit their original and previously unpublished poems, stories, creative nonfiction, novel excerpts, plays, comics, manga, original musical compositions, photographs, and photos of art work, such as paintings or sculpture, to Mush magazine. (Prior publication is considered in cases of social media publication when circulation was small. Please email to ask.) If you and a partner wish to collaborate and send in a hybrid work, whether it is a prose/picture combo or a song that accompanies a particular sculpture, joint submissions are welcome! To be considered for publication, email all submissions and a short artist’s bio to: Late submissions will not be reviewed.

Each submitter may send in works in up to three categories, with up to three submissions in each of those categories. All written submissions must be in English, though we welcome contributions from across the globe. For best consideration, prose works should be 2,000 words or fewer and poems 50 lines or less. Please send files or links for original music compositions. (Selected music will link via QR code from our journal to your online space; similar methods may be considered for novel excerpts.) Artwork should be submitted as jpeg files, and photos must be a minimum of 300 dpi quality or greater. (Please remove any watermarks or identifiers.) If you'd like help photographing your painting or sculpture, ask us and we are happy to help or offer advice/suggestions.
