There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Brainchild Magazine seeks submissions of creative visual and written work from undergraduate honors students for publication in our 2020 issue.

We welcome creators from all backgrounds at any stage in their artistic journey to submit their best work. We crave art that provokes a range of feelings: vulnerability, connection, intensity. We want art that surprises us, challenges us, draws us into its expressions and forms, guides our eyes from the next page to the next. We are proud to serve as a vehicle that brings works of art from emerging artists into the world. We hope that you will join us in our mission to share art by submitting your work to us. 

Brainchild is a literary and arts magazine, based at Kent State University, which publishes the works of students attending schools in the Mid-East Honors Association. One of our goals this year is to increase the number of submissions we receive, especially from students at campuses beyond our own. We are currently accepting original written works, including prose, poetry, and creative nonfiction, as well as submissions of visual art of all media. We welcome submissions that exist at the fringes of categorization or push the boundaries of a specific form, such as dynamic or typographic poems. Detailed submission guidelines and the digital submission portal can be found on our website,

Please note, we can only accept work from undergraduate Honors students within the MEHA region who are currently enrolled in an Honors College or Program at an accredited institution of higher education. If you do not meet this requirement, we apologize, but we are unable to accept your submission. Other opportunities are available for writers on,, poets & writers and elsewhere.

Any questions about the submission process can be directed to the editors at We appreciate your submissions and look forward to working with you.
