Luna Negra is one of the longest running publications at Kent State University. We are a platform for the creative and artistic Kent State student body. We welcome work from any Kent State student longing to share their creativity. We strive to amplify your voices. We want you to be heard.

We accept any form of creative work that can find a home on a page. We accept original, unpublished written work including prose, poetry and creative nonfiction, as well as visual work including fine art, photography and design. We welcome vibrant and dynamic works that may live outside the above categories. We welcome the bold, the new and the different.

We accept simultaneous submissions, but we ask that you notify us immediately if your submission is accepted elsewhere. For written submissions we request .doc/.docx or .pdf file types. For visual submissions we accept .pdf, high-resolution .jpg, or .tiff file types (tiff files are preferred). The DPI for files should be 300 or higher if submitting for print.

For questions and concerns regarding the submission process, please contact lunanegramag@gmail.com. We thank you for trusting our publication as a home for your art.


We prefer that fiction submissions do not exceed 3,000 words. Longer submissions will be considered, but may be excerpted in publication. If you have a question concerning the length of your piece, please contact us.

We request .doc/.docx or .pdf file types.
