NOTE: ** NEED SHORT FICTION AND ESSAYS!! **
A bimonthly online magazine, Muscadine Lines: A Southern Journal features fiction, essays, memoir, and poetry of emerging and established writers. The site also maintains an archive of works from previous issues.
Above all, Muscadine Lines: A Southern Journal wants exemplary writing with a broad appeal.
MLASJ seeks writing that is uniquely southern, writing that has a special focus on southern life or tradition, writing that conveys the southern voice or the southern experience.
MLASJ seeks southern writers--those who currently live in the South, those who have lived in the South at some point in their lives, those who have southern connections, or those whose works are set in the South.
MLASJ reserves the right to publish writing that is not necessarily southern, but appeals or applies to us all.
Muscadine Lines: A Southern Journal accepts unsolicited submissions.
We accept short fiction, essays, memoir, and poetry. The piece preferably should be under 2,000 words in length. (If you would like to submit a story or essay longer than this, please let me know.)
