The 4th issue of Hoochie Reader is now open for submissions!

Work allowed for submission includes academic papers, creative writing, and artwork. The Reader will be published in a print issue as well as online.

Submitting work to Hoochie provides value-added editing and feedback to authors. Most exciting, is to have your work, whether an academic essay, piece of creative writing, or artwork, featured in both a print and digital issue from a major university.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Submissions are due January 20th, 2020.

Please submit work and questions to
