There are presently no open calls for submissions.

ayris is a student and facutly run creative arts journal showcasing the best work of the New Hampshire Institute of Art students, faculty, and alumni.  By reflecting the immense talent and ambition of NHIA students in a single collection, our goal is to foster a sense of friendly competition among the student body and encourage further achievement within our community. Contributors are encouraged to submit works that they have approached with the most passion and sincerity. ayris aims to select and publish works from all artistic disciplines and mediums, be they traditional or experimental, 3D or digital, poetry or prose. Quality is our only criteria. 

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

We are currently accepting submissions for our 2015 issue.  The deadline is March 6th at midnight.

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

  • Limit poetry submissions to seven poems
  • Limit fiction/non-fiction to five pieces that are no more than 2,500 words each, ranging from flash pieces to excerpts of 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.  

For those concerned: ayris does not reserve rights to any accepted works.  Meaning, if you submit your work and it is printed, you are still free to submit it for books, galleries, and larger, ISBN established creative arts journals out in the world.

ayris contributors will receive one copy of the published issue.
