MudRoom 75

About

MudRoom is a place for you to kick your shoes off. It’s somewhere between where you’ve come from and where you’re going. Here at MudRoom, we believe in the liminal, the dirty, the messy, and the mundane. Everyone is welcome, because MudRoom is a magazine devoted to the transition. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been writing for ten years, or if you just started last month. We publish issues of prose and poetry, as well as book reviews and interviews with writers.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
