Mount Hope Magazine
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
We will be in hiatus until Fall 2020. We'll resume submissions at that point.
Mount Hope is a twice-yearly literary journal published at Roger Williams University, Bristol, RI. We're looking for literary fiction (up to 5,000 words), poetry (up to 5 poems may be submitted together) and nonfiction essays and memoirs (up to 5,000 words). We welcome aspiring writers and seasoned authors.
(9/18/18) Congratulations to author Peter Grandbois, whose essay "Passion" (Mount Hope Issue 12) was cited as a "Notable Essay of 2017" in Best American Essays 2018.
Announcement (5/15/18): We are tying our university's annual theme, “Ocean State/State of the Ocean: The challenge of sea level rise" for our Spring 2019 Issue. The topic of "Rising Seas" seeks essays, fiction, poetry and the like on the more generalized topic of climate change, the environment or nature and how these affect us. This topic can be connected closely or loosely; not all submissions need to be on this topic to be considered, but part of the magazine will be devoted to this.
