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 We accept original, unpublished written work including prose, poetry and creative nonfiction, as well as visual work including fine art, photography and design.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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you for trusting our publication as a home for your art.
Art and Illustration:
Art is not confined to museums. We seek visuals that captivate minds and cause us to pause with thought. Do not be afraid to push the envelope. All kinds of techniques are welcome and encouraged, whether traditional, digital or experimental. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about the medium or nature of your work.
We request .pdf, .jpg, .gif or .tiff image files at a resolution high enough for print (at least 300 DPI). For video, please send .mp4 or .mov files.
