MUSEPAPER explores the possibilities of a monthly writing practice, the gift of deadlines, and the novelty unleashed when we dare to write outside our comfort zones, push the envelope, ignore the crowd, and follow our Muse.
We’ve spent a quarter of a century awarding and publishing thousands of new and emerging poets and writers, and we asked each one for their best writing advice. Nearly all of them center on one truth: Writers — the successful ones — write. Obvious, yet profound. With that as our inspiration, we listened to our own Muse, and Musepaper was born.
We believe in the creative potential of every writer, regardless of experience. Blind and anonymous judging ensures equality for writers of every level. All writers are welcome, and no style or subject matter is off-limits.
