submissions for issue one are open until may 30th!
muffie is a new indie e-magazine that represents the kids who read ao3 when the teacher's not looking. we are looking for surreal, gritty, silly, and inspired art, writing, and other things from creators who are young, LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, neurodivergent, or just super rad and punkish in general. our only two rules: don't be traditional and don't be boring.
