Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
MudRoom is a place for you to kick your shoes off. It’s somewhere between where you’ve come from and where you’re going. Here at MudRoom, we believe in the liminal, the dirty, the messy, and the mundane. Everyone is welcome, because MudRoom is a magazine devoted to the transition. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been writing for ten years, or if you just started last month. While like many journals, we publish issues of prose and poetry, we also work to put out content devoted to developing a practice—advice columns on craft, and short essays focused on writing’s convergence with our everyday lives. MudRoom publishes four issues, as well as a number of essays and craft columns a year because our mission is to provide every writer, emerging and established, the opportunity to both see their work published, and engage with a larger literary community. Craft is not just a point of focus for people getting degrees. Our goal is to make the practice of writing accessible to everyone.
