Brandeis Literary Magazine Accepting Submissions for National Issue
Laurel Moon, Brandeis University's oldest literary magazine, is now accepting submissions for its national issue. This issue's mission is to feature the innermost voices from a group of diverse, young writers.
For more than 20 years, Laurel Moon has published the best fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry that Brandeis students have to offer.
As of last spring, Laurel Moon began accepting submissions from undergraduates enrolled at any accredited U.S. college or university.
The submissions deadline for the upcoming national issue is March 15, 2019. For this issue, the magazine will be accepting original, unpublished work written in English. Up to five poems and three prose works will be considered from each author, as well as up to 15 pages of content in another form.
Writers are encouraged to submit early. Laurel Moon invites eager writers to apply for one of two types of submissions. Writers who submit on or before Jan. 28 will have the option to receive workshop-style feedback from the editors of Laurel Moon and resubmitting their work with edits. Additionally, Laurel Moon will be offering one-on-one feedback to two writers who wish to receive guidance on any creative writing piece they they present.
