Check out our latest issue, Vol. 6!
Thank you to everyone who made this volume possible! Check out the online version on our "Volumes" page. We are so excited to share this year's magazine with you, and we hope you enjoy the pieces as much as we do.
With in-class meetings cancelled for the rest of the spring semester, and a stay-at-home call for Ohio being enforced, it is with great sadness that Happy Captive will no longer be holding its release party for Vol. 6, originally set for late April. Despite this news, copies of this spring's magazine have successfully been printed! While quarantine has limited our distribution capabilities, please look toward next fall's Mega Fair, English Activities Fair, as well as our tabling at Armstrong throughout the year for your very own copy of Vol. 6 (for contributors this may differ). A digital copy of the newest volume has also been prepared for your enjoyment under the "Volumes" page above.
We want to thank our contributors, staff, and all our readers for their enthusiasm, dedication, and perseverance toward this spring's volume. We are so proud of the final product, and cannot wait to share it with you in person!
In the meantime, we hope everyone is staying safe, and healthy.
Submissions are now closed
Thank you for submitting your work to Happy Captive Magazine... we couldn't do it without you! In the meantime, keep a look-out on our social media pages for any upcoming on-campus readings and our release party for Vol. 6 coming in April!
About the Magazine
Happy Captive Magazine is published annually by undergraduate students at Miami University in Oxford, OH, and features poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and art from fellow university students. We believe that the best stories are the ones that suck us in, make us think, and keep us prisoner until the final punctuation mark or last brush stroke.
Founded in 2014 by a group of English majors who wanted to provide a platform for eclectic and resonant undergraduate creative work, the magazine seeks moving narratives, and diverse voices, no matter the medium.
