*During November 2016, we will be reading for a special Fall issue of 5 6x9 postcards and 2 letterpress poems or short prose. Click below to be a part of this unique issue.   

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.  

During the Fall semester, we feature student work in our on-campus gallery space, Vault Gallery. In the Spring semester, we produce a print journal. However, we have rolling submissions year-round for student work on our blog http://ayrismag.tumblr.com, and comic submissions for our small press publication, Stall Street. 

All work submitted year-round 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.
