Submissions for our print magazine now open!

Luna Negra is one of the longest-running publications at Kent State University. As a literary arts magazine, we strive to amplify your voices. 

In keeping with this mission, we accept submissions from any Kent State students, faculty, and staff members. Accepted submissions will be published in our print magazine in the spring of 2022. In the event that there is not enough room for all accepted submissions, we will publish some submissions to Luna Online.

We accept original, unpublished work of prose, poetry, creative nonfiction, fine art, photography, and illustration. We also welcome vibrant, dynamic works that may live outside these categories. For submissions guidelines, please refer to the instructions within each submission category.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact We thank you for trusting Luna Negra as a home for your art.
