Editorial Focus

Moxy is a literary magazine that focuses on creative nonfiction—work with a nonfiction subject matter, written with the imaginative verve and stylistic skill of the best fiction. It publishes criticism, essays, travel writing, memoir, and pieces that blur the boundaries in between. We also feature original artwork and cartoons. 

Tips From the Editor

We accept submissions up to 4000 words. We accept simultaneous submissions. We also accept pitches for unwritten pieces. Please ensure you read the full submissions guidelines on our website before sending in your work.
