Mega-List of University Literary Journals Accepting Submissions in Fiction, Poetry, Art, CNF

CC0 License
You may wonder why you should submit to literary journals run by MFA programs. They seldom pay, and they often charge to submit. Normally, either one of those factors would be enough to eliminate them from my list of writing markets. But in spite of those two drawbacks, there are some good reasons to submit to university literary magazines.

MFA department literary magazines are run by young, enthusiastic students and their professors, which means they are more than happy to nominate the stories they accept for Pushcart and other national prizes.

The second reason is that any agent or editor who has graduated from one of these programs in all likelihood has a subscription. (I know of at least one case in which a short story submission to a university literary journal resulted in representation.)

The third reason to consider submitting is that these journals have a "captive audience." Students, professors, and university staff read them, and depending on the size of the university that can be a lot of people.

Without further ado, here are 130 literary journals run by MFA programs.

  2. Awesome list, thank you so much for taking the time to make this! I'm just diving into it, but one thing to note is that the Pacific Review you listed at San Bernadino is an alumni-only journal. The more known pacificREVIEW is out of San Diego State University (https://pacificreview.sdsu.edu/).
