ISSUE TWO SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN
Mycelium Vol. 1, Issue 2
Sustainability is a difficult practice. It can be spiritual, environmental, bodily, or survival based. The second issue of Mycelium is interested in the ways you sustain yourselves. What gets you through the day when climate change is impending? What helps you get up when the world is in chaos? What moves are you making to improve your world or the world as a whole? What is keeping you alive? We are open to accepting submissions in any genre including but not limited to: essay, poetry, short fiction, photography, recipe, and comic book. Show us your connections, your progress, your decay. Please see above for more details concerning general guidelines
SPECIAL ALBUM REVIEW ISSUE SUBMISSIONS OPEN
Mycelium Vol. 1, Issue 2.5
This short, special issue will be dedicated to reviews of albums and songs that have helped us all get through quarantine and the pandemic. Can't stop listening to sad music? Write about it for us! Been dancing in your apartment every night to a certain song to stay sane and active? Write about it for us!
Submissions should not exceed 1,500 words, but there is no minimum word requirement. Make sure your submission includes the name of the album, the artist, and any ratings the album has. We ask that you avoid writing about albums with themes of sexual, gendered, or racial violence, or with any themes of general overt violence.
ISSUE ONE SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED

We are asking you to send in your writing and artwork to be part of the inaugural issue of Mycelium. We are open to accepting submissions in any genre including but not limited to: essay, poetry, short fiction, photography, recipe, and comic book. Show us your connections, your progress, your decay.
