Mush Literary Magazine

Mush, a literature and art magazine produced by the students, comes out every spring just before finals. Copies are free to students and sold to community members. (Mush: what makes Huskies go!)

To work on Mush, join the student Writer’s Club, the Writers’ Lounge.

Submitting Work for Mush

UW-Stevens Point branch campus (Wausau and Marshfield) students and alumni, as well as Marathon and Wood County writers, you are invited to submit your original and previously unpublished poems, stories, creative nonfiction, novel excerpts, plays, comics, manga, original musical compositions, photographs and photos of art work, such as paintings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.) Email all submissions or queries to: A second submissions window for the 2019 issue will be open from January 9 - 18, 2019. If you didn't have time to send us your work last fall, please send it now!

Each submitter may send in works in up to three categories, with up to five submissions in each of those categories. For best consideration, prose works should be 2,000 words or less and poems 40 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 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.
