Looking for some great short reads?

How about some amazing poetry and fabulous independent art?

Mavguard, RAD Writing’s premiere literary and art magazine, is for you! With editions released in April and October of every year, Mavguard is always changing and growing to showcase more amazing new work from all over the world.

And we’re not purely designed around the readers.

By showcasing short stories (fiction and nonfiction), poetry (rhyming and free verse), and art (of every medium) from any submitter, our aim is to show the world that you don’t have to be a big name creator to have larger-than-life vision or creativity.

Mavguard is the magazine that publishes good art, regardless of who made it. We don’t care if our artists have been published before or not, whether they’re veterans or rookies. All we want to do is see your work published and share it with the world. We want to see art shine, no matter who you are, where you’re from, or what kind of art you do (whether that be writing or painting, doodling or rhyming).

If you’re looking for some read short reads, or you’re hunting for a place to submit your work, Mavguard is your place to go.

New Editions hit our shelves every April and October, and of course, they've all been RADrated by our dedicated editors and volunteers.
