The submission deadline is December 17, 2015. Contributors will be contacted via email regarding acceptance after February 1, 2016. Please do not email us with inquiries before this date. Entries will only be published in Miscellany if accepted during the editing process.


Miscellany only accepts digital submissions from currently enrolled undergrads. Email with your name, medium of work (fiction, micro-fiction, poetry, visual art, etc.), graduation year, and the university you attend in the body of your email. Please make the file name(s) the title of your piece(s), and also include the title(s) of your piece(s) in the body of your email as well as at the top of the submission itself. Miscellany will not publish untitled pieces. Please do not include your submission in the body, but attach it as a Word document unless you are submitting visual art. Please do not put your name on your submission. If you are submitting multiple pieces, add each one as an individual attachment. Failure to follow these guidelines may prevent your work from being selected. Please email us if you have any questions/comments/concerns.

Each student is allowed to submit up to eight pieces per category. Please see below for the specific requirements in each genre. While multiple submissions in multiple genres is encouraged, please keep in mind that since we strive to publish the widest selection of student work possible, Miscellany will only publish at the maximum up to the three pieces per person.


Please do not double space your poems unless that is your desired form and the way you’d like them to appear in the magazine. Each student is allowed to submit up to 5 pages per poetry piece.


Please double space all prose. Each student is allowed to submit up to 15 pages per prose piece, although works around 8-10 pages have a higher acceptance rate.


There is no requirement regarding file type for visual art submissions. However, pieces that are not photographs must be photographed for consideration. Images with 300 psi resolution are preferred, but not required. Cell phone documentations/images are not allowed.

Miscellany uses one-time printing rights, after which all rights revert back to the author.
