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 OPEN!
Happy Captive Magazine is actively looking for submissions! Do you love writing, painting, sculpting, singing, taking photographs, or any other form of art? We are looking for 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. We want to help you get published and celebrate what Miami students are doing on campus. But, first, you have to submit!
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
