Your work should be inspired by that theme, but does not have to follow it precisely. Upcoming themes will be announced first on our social media sites and then here on the website. If you’re unsure of the tone of MIDLVLMAG and whether or not your work will fit in with what we're publishing, read our issues and follow us online. We publish two - three times a year, and maybe more as we’re able.  After publication, MIDLVLMAG promotes contributor pieces on social media.
