Multiplicity Magazine, the literary journal of the MFA in Creative Nonfiction at Bay Path University, is published twice a year, once in October and once in March. Multiplicity Blog posts two original works of nonfiction prose, poetry, or photography per week, one on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Multiplicity Magazine and Multiplicity Blog both celebrate the variety and range of the human experience in contemporary literature. We publish sparkling and insightful creative nonfiction, and we are especially interested in work by writers who live or have lived and worked outside the literary mainstream. Women. People of color. Immigrants and international writers. Veterans. Activists. Writers from LGBTQ communities. Crisis workers. Working-class writers. Anyone who has a story that needs to be heard.

Some of the topics we’re passionate about: the human body, gender, culture and language, mental health and trauma, the medical journey, the environment, family histories, stories that connect people and place. We invite you to submit in these areas, and also to share your own passions and interests with us. (You might be writing about something that is unknown to us. If you think we need to know about it, send it! We’re all about discovery.)

Before you submit to either our blog or our magazine, please visit our website to learn more about our preferred topics (see the About Multiplicity page) and our submission guidelines (located on our Submission Guidelines page).

Multiplicity Blog typically publishes posts that are between 300 and 500 words, but we will consider submissions that are as short as a single sentence or as long as 1,000 words. Text-based blog submissions may include nonfiction prose and poetry (one poem per post). We also accept original photography, either as a post unto itself or with accompanying explanatory text or captions (up to three photos per post).

Multiplicity Magazine considers submissions of short-form creative nonfiction (500-1,500 words), long-form creative nonfiction (1,500-5,000 words), poetry, and flash nonfiction (up to 500 words) from established and emerging writers. We also accept original photography that relates to our issue theme. Please check our Submission Guidelines page for our reading schedule.

Multiplicity Magazine and Multiplicity Blog will not knowingly publish submissions that are slanderous, libelous, racist, sexist, ageist, or otherwise intentionally discriminatory or offensive. All works must be original and must not be subject to copyright restrictions. For each issue, the journal publishes one submission per selected author/artist. Once our final review is complete, our Editorial Committee will notify each submitter of the status of their work.
