Pop-Up Pride Issue with Moss Puppy Magazine

OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Minison Project and Moss Puppy Magazine are teaming up to publish a special Pride issue this June!

​Both TMP and MPM were founded by queer little ducks both named Melissa – a coincidence that has both of us excited to collaborate on such a special project. For this collaborative issue, we’d love to showcase writing and artwork by LGBTQIA+ creatives.

Submissions will be open from May 10, 2023 to May 31, 2023 with an estimated publication date of June 2023 to kick off Pride month! 

See guidelines below before submitting!
