Welcome Multiplicity Magazine!

Leanna James Blackwell, director of the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Nonfiction, is pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of Multiplicity, the online literary magazine produced by the MFA program. Entirely online, the first issue launched in April of 2020.

Two years in the planning, the magazine is a dream come true. Multiplicity is the product of an extraordinary team effort of three MFA faculty members, three MFA alumni, and one current MFA student, along with the invaluable support of Dr. Kris Barnett and Dr. Melissa Morriss-Olson.

The first issue focused on and featured the theme of “Borders, Boundaries, and Belonging,” and features 18 essays by established and upcoming writers, four mini-collections of poetry, and a selection from Bay Path’s writer-in-residence, Suzanne Strempek Shea.

The publication calendar is twice a year, in the spring and the fall. Multiplicity is open to all writers of creative nonfiction and poetry, and submission guidelines can be found on
