Moss Puppy Magazine calls for submissions for Prose, Poetry and Visual Art for Issue 4 with the theme Caged.
Moss Puppy Magazine is a biannual-themed literary magazine founded in July 2021 which solely features poetry, prose, and artwork. They accept submissions twice a year, and each issue generally has a theme.
In the words of the founder of Moss Puppy Magazine, “They look for authenticity and that one unique thing that makes the work stand out from all the rest. They look for work that stays with them long after they have read it, which means they know it had an effect on them in some way.”
Additionally, they tend to lean towards pieces that get them talking to each other – pieces that rustle their emotions. They announce that their readers can expect pieces that flirt with darkness, have comedic undertones on occasion, dabble in sadness while appreciating the sunshine, and aren’t afraid to get lost in the woods.
Hence, this means that written submissions should be eloquently written to fit the theme and appropriately edited.
