Submit to Muse/A Journal

Muse/A Journal (myoo-zay) pays its writers and artists. You work hard on your writing, so get some cash for it.

What do we want? Muse/A seeks lyrical, playful, moving, linguistically-inventive, unique, experimental, moving, honest, diction-sensitive, perhaps collaborative, economical, attentive, vested, clever, touching, REAL work. If this describes your work in any way, we’d love to see it.

We are using Submittable, and you can access our submissions manager. We are currently closed for submissions. 

For our online issues, we are also awarding the Red Lobster Prize to our editors’ favorite piece. This award entitles the writer to a Red Lobster gift card, allowing the writer to feast on some cheddar biscuits and shrimp scampi. We are currently charging a $3.00 fee for submissions, even though we could charge whatever the hell we want with a promotion like that.
