Submissions on pause until fall

If you’ve tried submitting your work this past week, you probably noticed you couldn’t. That’s because Mount Island is temporarily closed for submissions. Our apologies for the inconvenience!

We’ve received more than enough submissions to keep us busy since we first opened at the start of the summer, and we need some time to catch up with all of your enthusiasm. We will open for submissions again by November. Thank you for your patience, and for entrusting us with your art.

Early-bird subscription sale for our inaugural issue

In related news, we are hard at work readying our inaugural issue for a late October release. Digital editions will be available for purchase online, but you can subscribe right now to save yourself a lot of fuss. Subscriptions keep little magazines afloat! Lend your support today by purchasing a subscription in our online store. A 1-year subscription is 4 issues at $15, and a 2-year subscription is 8 issues at $30.

From now until December 31 you can get 30% off your subscription by entering this coupon code at checkout:


That makes your 1-year subscription $10 instead of $15, or your 2-year subscription $20 instead of $30. What are you waiting for?

The above coupon can be applied only to products in the “Subscriptions” category until 12/31/19, after which date the coupon is no longer valid.
