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.
