At long last, our September issue is live! You can access it here or by navigating to the “Issues” tab on the website menu. This issue brings readers an intimate and intensely emotive collection of poems that tap into the wellsprings of imagination and creativity surrounding female mythological figures. From the seductive, charming magic of Circe to the raw psyche of the Chimera, this issue delves into worlds of moving imagery, powers, and emotion.

Happy reading and writing!

Summer restructuring!

Dearest readers,

We hope all of you are safe and well as summer approaches! Carmina Magazine will not be releasing a June 2020 issue as previously scheduled. We will be doing some restructuring/construction on the website over summer to make it better and brighter! Our next issue is tentatively slated for September 2020.

Thanks to all of you who read, write, and contribute. We are always accepting submissions and look forward to reading your work. Happy reading and writing!
