Muse /A Journal (myoo-zay) 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 accepting poetry, lyric essays, and art submissions from October 9-November 11. For poetry, we ask that you limit you submission to three-five poems and no more than ten pages total. For lyric essay, our sweet spot is 500-2,000 words. For art, please submit a sample portfolio of at least ten images.

We are aware of the disagreement in the literary world about submission fees. No one likes them. Small presses and journals often attempt to offset the expenses of web-hosting, marketing, publication software, and even Submittable itself by requesting a small fee. Muse /A is currently charging a $3.00 fee.
