Mud City is an online literary journal promoting the ideals and vision of the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Low Residency MFA Program. We publish in the spring of each year.
While Mud City is rooted in an Indigenous centered program, we look to publish writers from a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences, styles, and aesthetics.
Mud City publishes fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and screenwriting. All submissions, including solicitations, are read by a dedicated staff of IAIA MFA students and faculty advisors. The staff also manages submissions, solicitations, publication decisions, website design, and blog content.
Through the MC Blog we publish original content including interviews, video footage of craft talks and readings from faculty members and visiting writers. Blog contributors are solicited through our student body.
