Mulberry Literary: Call for all creative media


Submissions for Issue VIII open midnight (CST/CDT) MARCH 1, 2024 and close midnight (CST/CDT) MAY 1, 2024.

Mulberry accepts all creative media—from prose, flash, poetry, script, and comics, to film, music, visual art, dance, and everything in-between. Cross-genre, experimental, and hybrid work are always welcome, as well as excerpts of longer pieces.

We accept work from everyone who wishes to submit, but we particularly encourage work from LGBTQIA+, femme-aligned people, and BIPoC voices. If you’re a creative writing undergraduate, graduate student, or member of creative writing faculty at a college/university, we’d love to hear from you. As ever, international submissions and submissions of translated work are welcome.

Please follow the guidelines below and fill out the form at the bottom of this page before submitting your work via email. Work that is sent in without completing the form is automatically rejected.

We look forward to seeing your best work!
