The time is upon us once more everyone, the submission period for Issue 6 is officially OPEN! Same procedure as before save a few minor changes, but no worries everything is bundled up nice and beautiful like for you over on our ‘Submission’ guideline page here. Check it out to submit now!
I’m REAAALLLLYYY excited for Issue 6 because I have been planning a huge event for awhile now, and hopefully this is the Issue that my dream will come to fruition. There are some deets in the making and knots to close, but if we go through with this we will be having a huge launch party. It will be similar to the awesome launch we had for Issue 3, hosted by The Drawing Board in Corvallis, with an artist reception and walking body art and a reveal of the latest issue at midnight…but on top of all that goodness there will be performance artists on stage throughout the evening and an extended show for the visual artists. If we get any submissions from fashion or jewelry designers, I would love to create a time slot for a mini fashion show. It will be a HUGE party. That’s why this time, I really encourage all you performance artists out there to submit…we’ve had a few in the past but I would love some more!
Dancers, musicians, thespians, comedians, what have you, JOIN US for Issue 6! And if you know someone, SHARE THIS LINK with them.
But remember, nothing is currently finite. Other than this: regardless, Issue 6 will be bomb. And YOU guys will make it so. (zing!)
Create. Submit. Share. Inspire. Y’all keep it up and so will I!
Thanks to everyone who made Issue 5 such a success, let’s keep this momentum up! And if anyone would like to be a part of the team just send me an email ^^
Yall read right, it’s August which means time to get ready for the next installment of the ever growing local art and literary zine, Midnight Muse! Because of the outstanding support we’ve received from all you crazy cats, we have the privilege to bringing … Continue reading

We look forward to your submissions! Don’t forget to let us know if you want to be considered for our Featured Artist spot. And if you weren’t accepted last time, try again! Never stop trying, we are here for you!

One last thing, and a very important one at that: it’s been brought to attention that our Facebook updates are not showing up on everyones walls. If so, you have been missing out on a lot of stuff.

Yes! Welcome to the new virtual home of Midnight Muse. I am so happy to have switched over. Now that looking at the website doesn’t make me want to cry, we will be making more posts here and not just on our Facebook. It’s still far from perfect, but until we can afford a domain and host of our own then I think this is just perfect!
A couple things:
- Did you hear? We’ve LAUNCHED! Midnight Muse made it’s debut January 15th and the response we’ve recieved has been mind-blowing to us. Seriously. You can read the whole thing on our Current Issues page ;]
- CALL TO ART Submission Period kicks off February 1–29th and we encourage EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHERS to submit! There is a TON of information on our Submissions page but don’t be shy to ask us if you have any questions.
- Yesterday we hosted our first event. We had our Nude Model Drawing Session at my photography studio in Corvallis. It was awesome and we can’t wait to keep it up. I’ll post a few at the bottom for you guys to check out.
Anyway, that’s about it for now! We are in the process of some great things and we can’t wait to begin Issue 2. Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us and contributing your fine work and sharing it with your community.
