Multiplicity Magazine and Blog

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submitting to Multiplicity Magazine  

Multiplicity Magazine, the literary journal of the MFA in Creative Nonfiction at Bay Path University, is published annually in late spring. Our issues are themed, and calls for submissions are generally released in late fall. Leading up to each magazine release, we call for submissions to Quick Work, where we seek micro-flash nonfiction of 100 words or fewer.  

Multiplicity Magazine celebrates the variety and range of the human experience in contemporary literature. We publish sparkling and insightful creative nonfiction, poetry, and photography, 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, please visit our website to learn more about our themed issues and see our current call. Also, please follow our submission guidelines (located on our Submission Guidelines page).

Multiplicity Magazine 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. After submissions close for an issue, and once our final review is complete, our Editorial Committee will notify each submitter of the status of their work. 

Additional information on the Usage Rights we request upon publication can be found on the Usage Rights page of our website. To be considered for publication, submissions must meet our guidelines and writers must agree to our Usage Rights policies.
