About: MudRoom is calling for submissions for their Summer 2021 Issue! MudRoom is a place for you to kick your shoes off. It’s somewhere between where you’ve come from and where you’re going. At MudRoom, they believe in the liminal, the dirty, the messy, and the mundane. Everyone is welcome, because MudRoom is a magazine devoted to the transition. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been writing for ten years, or if you just started last month.
Guidelines: Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. If your work is accepted elsewhere, we just ask that you let us know immediately through Submittable. We will not consider work with sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, or ableist content. Your name should appear on you cover letter but not in the submission.
Poetry: MudRoom publishes poetry of all types.
To submit, please send 3-5 original, previously unpublished poems in a single .DOC/.DOCX .ODT or PDF file with one poem per page (eight pages maximum).
Indicate POETRY SUBMISSION in your subject line. Submissions without “Poetry Submission” in the subject line will be deleted. You may also include a brief cover letter/third-person bio in the body of your email.
Prose: Mudroom publishes fiction, essays, and essays in translation.
To submit, please send a previously unpublished work no longer than 6,000 words in double spaced 12-point Times New Roman font. All works should be attached in a single .DOC/.DOCX .ODT or PDF file
Please indicate PROSE SUBMISSION in your subject line. Submissions without “Prose Submission” in the subject line will be deleted. You may also include a brief cover letter/third-person bio in the body of your email.
Expedited Submissions: For expedited submissions, please support us on kofi, and then in the subject line of your submission, add the word EXPEDITED. For poetry submissions, this would look like POETRY SUBMISSION EXPEDITED, and for prose submissions would appear as PROSE SUBMISSION EXPEDITED. All donations go toward paying our contributors.
