Submitting Work for MUSH

UWMC students and Marathon County writers, you are invited to submit your original and previously unpublished poems, stories, creative nonfiction, novel excerpts, plays, comics, manga, original musical compositions, photographs and photos of art work, such as paintings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: Submissions for the upcoming 2018 issue will close November 5, 2017.

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, poems 40 lines or less, and music 5 minutes or less. (Selected music will link via QR code from our journal to your 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. If you'd like help photographing your painting or sculpture, ask us and we are happy to help.

Questions may be sent to
