Submissions are open!
Do you love writing, painting, sculpting, 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 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.

Thank you to everyone who made this volume possible! Grab a copy at several locations on and off campus, from Armstrong Student Center to local businesses, and 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.
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.
