Ayris is a student and faculty run creative arts journal showcasing the best work of the New Hampshire Institute of Art students, faculty, and alumni.  

In the spring semester, we produce a print journal, and during the year we feature student work on our blog http://ayrismag.tumblr.com.  We are looking for work to be featured on our blog.  All work will also be considered for the print journal.

Contributors are encouraged to submit works that they have approached with the most passion and sincerity. Ayris publishes works from all artistic disciplines and mediums, be they traditional or experimental, 3D or digital, poetry or prose. Whatever you are creating, we'd love to consider showcasing.

We only consider work from NHIA students, faculty, and alumni.

We encourage you to submit in as many categories as you want, but please follow these genre suggestions:

  • 5-7 poems is a nice bunch
  • Because of the limited number of pages in the print journal, and the short attention span of the internet, we find the most successful lengths for prose hover around the 2500 word count.  That said, we are certainly open to serializing longer work.
  • Limit visual art to ten pieces 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted with the understanding that you will notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not consider previously published works.
