***Note: Please only submit work that has not been published elsewhere.

We are looking for work by young local artists and writers (middle school-college). That being said, everyone can submit no matter your age or school. We are excited to suppot a diverse pool of contributors and a broad audience!

We publish poetry, prose, short stories, creative non-fiction, photography, digital art, drawings, paintings, song lyrics, videos, voice recordings — anything that you are artistically passionate about. There are no formal limitations on content that can be submitted. We may occasionally put out calls for writing and art centered around a specific theme but all work will still be accepted during those times.

Submissions are open all year round. Our website will be updated all year round and all works will be considered for publication here. We will post updates about submission calls for digital and print issues on our website and on our Instagram account @carnegiea.mag

Our literary magazine comes in two forms, a hard copy literary magazine, and an online blog. Writing and art will be considered for both the magazine and the blog. However, some work might be only on one platform or another. We will contact you if your piece has been chosen for publication via email. 

So, what are we looking for?
We want pieces that wrench our hearts and make us think. Send us your late-night thoughts, your daydreams, your innermost passions and murmurings, your reflections and speculations. Send us pieces that you feel

Please send us an email at that includes a short cover letter (your name and a couple sentences about you and your writing/art. No more than 100 words) and a pdf or jpeg of your work. The subject line of your email should be “submission”.
Submit your work here

Thank you!
