Join us at our release party for Vol. 5!
To celebrate the release of our fifth volume, Happy Captive will be having a release party at Kofenya in Uptown Oxford! From free magazines to readings from our incredible contributors, you won't want to miss this. Get your daily dose of literature and caffeine on Friday, April 26th from 9-11PM. RSVP on our Facebook page.
Submissions will open in the fall!
Do you love writing, painting, sculpting, singing, taking photographs, or any other form of art? Are you captivated by stories or enchanted by images? Do you sometimes find yourself unable to break free from a particularly exquisite work of visual or literary art? Happy Captive Magazine might be the place for you.
We accept submissions of all mediums. Whatever you are creating, we want to see it. Send us the prose you wrote in class, the digital or visual artwork you've been working on all semester, or the collection of pieces that, together, tell a story. To submit your work, read through our guidelines and send pieces to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Magazine
Happy Captive 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 works, the magazine seeks moving narratives, no matter the medium.
